Who knew Gus Van Sant was a watercolourist? Not I! His gently daubed paintings are sensitive and poetic, much like his films, with shades of Jean Cocteau in their renderings of masculinity. “I like to see beauty in as many things as I can,” he says.
His first New York solo show, ‘Gus Van Sant: Recent Paintings, Hollywood Boulevard‘ is on at Vito Schnabel Projects, 43 Clarkson Street, New York City, until November 1, 2019.
