Two days to go - Hilary Pecis's first solo exhibition with Timothy Taylor, 'Piecemeal Rhythm', opens this Thursday, 14 May in London. Pecis's new large-scale paintings reveal the artist's singular approach to perspective, where patterns play tricks on our vision and interiors and landscapes alike appear as vibrant prisms of colour and symbol, moving fluidly from abstraction to figuration and back again.

'Piecemeal Rhythm' will run until 26 June at 15 Bolton Street.

We are delighted to announce Kiki Smith: Autumn at Timothy Taylor London, running until 15 November.

Kiki Smith (b. 1954, Nuremberg, Germany) is recognized for her prolific and wide-ranging multidisciplinary career spanning over four decades, which has addressed the social, cultural and spiritual aspects of human nature. Much of Smith’s work is inspired by her own perceptions of animals and the natural world as it changes through the seasons, blended with the imagery of folklore, mythology and mysticism. Kiki Smith: Autumn evokes this lyrical confluence between the earthly and the fantastic, which will be examined through a selection of small sculptures, etchings and prints created between 2014 and the present day.

We've been featured on Artnet's 10 Things Not to Miss! Don't miss Josephine Meckseper: Pellea[s], now online for a limited time, where we're bringing all the subversive appeal of Meckseper's eerie film to the comfort of your own home.

UPDATE: In light of the developing COVID-19 virus, we have postponed the opening of "A Relationship of Parts: Christy Matson and Taylor Kibby" at Timothy Taylor, New York. We look forward to sharing new details on the exhibition's dates.

#LookingForward at #TimothyTaylor : A Relationship of Parts: Christy Matson and Taylor Kibby kicks off Thursday, 26 March with an opening reception at 6pm in our #NewYork gallery. Los Angeles-based artists Christy Matson and Taylor Kibby, who each explore the intersection between craft, materiality and conceptual art, are part of a movement of artists rewriting the possibilities of painting and sculpture. Matson creates large-scale, compellingly painterly abstract textiles, while Kibby forges delicate, malleable stoneware sculptures that resemble chains. Together, their works explore ideas of memory, narrative and space while challenging traditional hierarchies between craft and fine art. #WatchThisSpace

Join us on Tuesday, 10 March at 6:30pm for the London premiere of Josephine Meckseper: Pellea[s], open March 11-23 2020. The premiere will be followed by the artist in conversation with writer and curator Michele Robecchi. Based on Maurice Maeterlinck’s Symbolist play, Pelléas and Mélisande, and set in Washington, D.C., Pellea[s] narrates the story of a doomed love triangle against the backdrop of real footage captured from Donald J. Trump's 2017 Presidential Inauguration and the landmark women’s march that followed. The film will be accompanied by Story of Mankind, a subversive example of Meckseper's famous vitrines, which will feature at Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt in the exhibition ‘We Never Sleep’ in summer 2020.

Don't miss our newest exhibition, London-based artist Daniel Crews-Chubb's first New York exhibition: Cave Continuum. Opening today and running until 14 March 2020, Crews-Chubb's innovative, experimental collage paintings explore the symbols and archetypes of art history across millenia. Each mixed-media work comprises an encyclopaedic melange of stylistic references, inspired both by the challenge of finding originality in the wake of the midcentury masters.

Today is the final day to see Jorge Eielson’s remarkable knotted Quipus series at #TimothyTaylor New York. Eielson’s intricate sculptural works have a double meaning, referring both to Quipus - the ancient language of yarn-knotting used by the Incans - and the duality of the word ‘knot’ in Spanish, which also means ‘naked’, injecting the series with a sly eroticism. As curator Olympia Lambert for @hyperallergic once commented on Eielson’s works, ‘Here, every unmade bed has a story. The ties and splits of fabric reach out to the corners of the stretcher bars to give the viewer the sensation of literally being tied up, arms and legs splailed to and fro, not unlike a medieval torture chamber, or a dominatrix’s den.‘

Timothy Taylor is pleased to present 'Notes on
Architecture', an exhibition of recent works by
Richard Forster (b.1970), following the gallery’s recent
announcement of representation.
'Notes on Architecture' - referencing the subversive
writing of Georges Bataille - brings a collection of
thirty-five individual drawings to London, made in the
artist’s Yorkshire studio between 2016 and 2018. Forster
creates a labyrinth of associations between different
historical sources - offering a pertinent and timely
perspective on the fractious socio-political climate of
today’s rapidly changing world. Small and intimate in
scale, Forster uses everyday materials such as pencil,
paper and masking tape to intensively record the cyclical
nature of time through the fragile and ephemeral
medium of drawing.

"According to Eloyan, a good painting is like a good joke, the pieces have to come together. With his characteristic dark humour, colourful paint and thick black contours, Eloyan reveals a dystopian world where things are thrown out of balance, confronting the viewer with existential questions."

"As we walk around Katz's studio, I ask if he feels he's taking more risks now. 'I'm still taking risks, is what it is,' he says. 'Most painters don't continue to take risks. They flatten out and just paint masterpieces.' So where does that impulse come from? 'I don't know where the fire comes from. It's competitiveness, it's trying to make people take me seriously, it's to show other painters my age that I'm much better ... and it's drive. There's no one alive that does this. The combination of the nerve and skill. You take a 10-foot x 14-foot painting and just one coat of paint on it and then paint into it? I never would have done that 10 years ago.'"

This piece by Josephine Meckseper is currently on show at Mostyn Gallery, as part of the artist's first solo presentation in Wales.

Meckseper melds the aesthetic language of modernism with the formal language of commercial display, combining them with her own images and film footage of historical undercurrents and political protest movements. Throughout her installations and vitrines, by simultaneously exposing and encasing common signifiers, such as advertisements and everyday objects, next to abstract paintings and sculptures she creates a window into the collective unconscious of our time.

09/12/2018

Two balletic poses are captured in this painting; a right arm extending upwards, one foot moving in front of the other, one figure never quite meeting the other. These paintings are insights into moments of fleeting gesture within a dynamic sequence.

The sheer scale and highly dextrous "no-noodling" brushwork of these paintings demonstrate an incredibly physical process of making, requiring rigour an discipline. The act of repetition is also key to Katz's practice - "part of what I'm about is seeing how I can paint the same thing differently, instead of different things in the same way."

Katz's work has long been defined by an economy of gesture - a hyperconscious simplification of a perpetual now, which he describes as "quick things passing". Katz's direct, unambiguous application of paint is devoid of sentimentality: these paintings are not about the character or mood of the figure, but rathe rthe style and attitude of a present moment, a subtle distinction with boundless consequence/

Ding Yi 'Interchange', currently on view at ShanghART Gallery 香格纳画廊.

"As the strongest visual component of Ding Yi's artistic practice, the latticed lines and patterns of crosses continue to be featured heavily in the exhibited works on basswood, canvas and paper.

Refined from the meaning of "tridimensional" and "intersectional", the exhibition title "Interchange" indicates his recent exploration on the layers and composition of paintings. This can be examined in more than ten pieces of paintings on basswood finished after 2015" Ding Yi uses thicker and harder basswood boards as base, and covered them with heavy acrylic colours.

Then he carves out of different shades, thuscreating resonance among brushstrokes, paint layers and texture of basswood. For the colour scheme, Ding Yi returns to the practice of multi-colouring, after the transformation from red/orange, blue/green to monochrome.

In his latest works in 2018, he attempts to create polychrome blocks as the base. Meanwhile, he purposefully leaves empty spaces while curving on the board, then draws sharp and solid lines that cross and cut diagonally on the painting surface. Th blaze opens up layers and exits of the painting, enriching the artless wood board with a sense of rhythm with brushstrokes and facets.

Beyond the flat structure with scattered points, and radiating composition gradually emerge in his recent works. Ding yI approached a deductive progress in composition."

08/12/2018

In this painting, a ground of sweeping, vertical brushmarks are densely layered forming a body of mottled, acidic yellows and greens. These layers are interrupted by swathes of greys and blacks tinged with blue and overlap into each other.

The paint is dragged down the surface, broken sporadically by horizontal gestures, muddied gouges with occasional flashes of red and green; the small scale evoking a feeling of intimacy.

These layered, abstract gestures allude to the figural composition of Degas' 'Woman at her Toilette'. Here Patterson is also referencing an art historical theme of painting women, unawares in their most intimate moments, reflecting the fundamentally voyeuristic nature of the relationship between the painter and his muse.

Patterson draws parallels between the history of the male gaze and formal qualities of abstraction.
