I am showing work in From Centre, curated by Saturation Point Projects and Slate Projects, which opens on 11th April at The Loud & Western Building, 65 Broughton Road, SW6 2LE. From Centre is a group exhibition which surveys contemporary approaches to reductive geometric painting, drawing and sculpture. Spanning several generations of artists, born in every decade from the 1930s to the 1980s, From Centre makes the case for the growing relevance of abstract art in the UK today. The exhibition is especially marked by the legacy of the Systems Group and European Constructivism, as well as a number of direct pedagogic connections from Tess Jaray’s tenure at the Slade and Peter Lowe’s at Goldsmiths. Making use of all three floors in a converted laundry factory, the works exhibited expand on the notions of architecture, space and surface, and span the spectrum between systematic and intuitive approaches.
An illustrated catalogue with essays by Nathan Cohen, Laura Davidson and Alex Meurice will accompany the exhibition.
