Enrico David: Gradations of Slow Release is the largest US museum survey of the artist’s work to date.  Featuring twenty years of artistic output, this exhibition shows the breadth and versatility of this distinguished artist, whose practice is characterized by transformation. Born in Italy and based in London, David employs a variety of media – including sculpture, painting, installation, and works on paper – to develop a unique vision of the human form. His work shows movement and emotion, capturing feelings of vulnerability, elation, pain, anguish and more. David uses different materials to create works that are both abstract and figurative and that achieve a universal expression of the human experience. His work contains elements that seem to come from the fashion world, human emotion, and the shapes and feelings that represent movement and metamorphosis in the human condition.  Situated in the curved gallery spaces of the Hirshhorn’s second level, David’s works reveal all of these themes through a deeply personal lens.
