Viewing Idris Khan, The Seasons Turn at Victoria Miro

In lockdown Idris Khan produced a new body of work exploring the tumult of 2020. Now it’s the subject of an IRL solo show at Victoria Miro London.

The Seasons Turn includes two distinct installations. The largest comprises a suite of 28 watercolour and oil collaged works on paper that are stamped with fragments of the score of Vivaldi’s baroque masterpiece The Four Seasons.

There are seven works illustrating each season. As you move around the gallery, the colours change to reflect subtle seasonal shifts: lush greens and yellows of summer give way to the burnished hues of autumn.

Elsewhere, there is a series of mesmerising blue paintings — a colour the artist describes as having ‘an immediate effect on emotion’ — which are layered with the artist’s thoughts, feelings and responses to 2020. This show advocates for a slower, more considered way of looking. Just what we need.
