François Morellet

1st May - 14th Jul 2013

Acclaimed French artist François Morellet cites Pacific barkcloth as a formative influence on the development of his distinct type of abstraction, ranging from drawings and paintings through sculpture to ambitious installations. Arising out of modernism, it embodies a knowing playfulness that appeals both conceptually and aesthetically. For this exhibition, the artist proposes a selection of new paintings that complement our barkcloth exhibition, replicating work he made forty or fifty years ago but scaled up 4:1.
