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

Modern Art is opening a solo exhibition of new work by Phillip Lai. Since the early 1990s, Phillip Lai has been working with sculpture to develop a visual language that enables a certain kind of thinking about abstraction and specificity in the ubiquitous objects and material that much of human life depends upon for sustenance and survival. Lai returns to similar typologies of objects in his work.
Modern Art has announced representation of the Estate of Karlo Kacharava (1964-1994). Their first exhibition of Kacharava’s work, curated by Sanya Kantarovsky and Scott Portnoy, will take place in October 2021 and open during Frieze week at Modern Art Helmet Row.
