DESCRIPTION

Ana Cristea Gallery is pleased to present “Overdo,” the first exhibition in the United States by artist George Little, from January 10 - February 16, 2013.

Little utilizes the metaphorical platform of the restaurant as a vehicle for painterly investigation. The title of George Little’s first US show suggests that the works on display may have been overcooked; perhaps too much time was spent in the kitchen. He has created a locale where presentation, visibility and comprehension begin to waiver, without diminishing entirely.

There is a deep physicality within all of Little’s work, from his reliefs to his paintings. In this exhibition, Little invites us to peer through a window into a setting that is not quite what it appears to be. Via motifs, signage and iconography layers of meaning have been piled one on top of another, course after course. Cumulatively, his works appear to offer a new floor plan for the modernist bistro – one that was doodled on a napkin, folded and discarded on a window seat table. We are the fortunate patrons who happen upon the napkin after he has left.

George Little (b. 1988) was born and, currently, lives and works in London. In 2012, he graduated from the Royal College of Art in London and had works exhibited at the Liverpool Biennial and with the Bloomberg New Contemporaries at the ICA.
