Current Exhibition

MONIQUE FRYDMAN
Continues through to Saturday 12 August 2017. FREE Entry.

Don’t miss Monique Frydman‘s first solo exhibition in a public UK institution, surveying over thirty years of the French artist’s career.

Monique Frydman‘s abstract paintings are a vibrant embodiment of colour and light. Soft lines are produced through frottage, a technique for which the artist rubs pastel on to an unstretched canvas that has been placed over a tangle of cord or string, then often completes a work by adding pigment to the surface. The elegant arabesques of lines created by this process blend into the colour-saturated canvas. READ MORE
