ART OPENING: Torey Thornton Kneed a Sea Ware Groin at Stuart Shave / Modern Art

This is the American artist Torey Thornton’s first solo exhibition in Britain.

This exhibition at Modern Art comprises paintings made during the past year. Thornton is interested in the perception of pictorial space, and his paintings are typically colourful and ambiguously suggestive of both abstract form and recognisable figuration. His paintings’ supports include slatted wooden panels, large joined together sheets of paper, and found materials.


5th September – 3rd October Private view: Friday 4th September, 6-8pm 4-8 Helmet Row
London EC1V 3QJ
