One of the original YBAs, as the bright young things of the London art scene were dubbed in the early 1990s, Ian Davenport has been known since his debut from Goldsmiths’ College for his crisp, bright, nonchalently sassy acrylic pourings such as this “puddle painting” with its knowing collision of calculation and chance. On view at Paul Kasmin where his solo show is closing today.

This was an artcritical PIC in May 2009.
