Hemsworth’s previous exhibitions at Matt’s Gallery were Means to an End (1983) and Self Portraits (1988). Nearly 30 years on, Nothing to Declare brings together signs and representations of modernist art, alongside and integrated with signs and representations from what seem like cartoon narratives, offering pictorial and ideological oppositions.
An important and influential artist and teacher, Hemsworth’s paintings recognisably adopt a minimal visual language with definitive line drawings and simplified areas of colour, presenting contradictions between the serious and the absurd enabling the work to be both uncanny and subversive.
Gerard Hemsworth (b.1945) studied at St Martin’s School of Art, London from 1963–68 and has exhibited internationally since the ’70s. Up until 2011 he was Professor of Fine Art and Director of the MFA Fine Art Programme at Goldsmiths, University of London. In 2000 he won the Charles Wollaston Award at the Royal Academy of Arts.
