See further for photos, links and detailed info.
Luc Tuymans “The Shore” | David Zwirner | till 2 April
Ten new paintings layered with dark and/or controversial meaning. Themes span from Scottish independence, through colonialism to cannibalism. See, think, shiver.
Katy Moran | Parasol Unit | till 8 March
Small abstract paintings that absorb your attention and stir imagination. The longer you look, the better they get.
Press Release | Katy talks about her painting process
Bill Lynch | The Approach | till 15 Feb
Genius painter; suffers from schizophrenia; completely overlooked during his life; dies (2013) and receives post-mortem praise. Sounds familiar? Buy while stock lasts.
Press Release | Roberta Smith on Bill Lynch
Marlene Dumas “The Image as Burden” | Tate Modern | 5 Feb – 10 May
Extensive and probably the most significant exhibition of Dumas’ work to date in Europe. Opening on Tuesday, so photos will follow shortly.
