Fred Sorrell Long Tide Parafin to 11th July
This is Fred Sorrell’s first major solo exhibition and will focus on new work, including his largest paintings to date. Sorrell’s paintings have their basis in the act of looking. His work is predicated on a rigorous and extended study of light, colour, space and form in nature. Sorrell says ‘When studying colour in nature and watching how it splits, bounces, reflects and absorbs, I ask myself, “How much am I not seeing?”’ Parafin will reopen from 24th June by appointment book HERE

Isa Genzken Window Hauser & Wirth Saville Row to 1st August
‘Window’ is an exhibition at our London gallery by Isa Genzken featuring a new and unseen body of work. Genzken’s immersive environment expands on the themes of travel, through elements of an aircraft cabin, and the window as a juncture between interior and exterior spaces. In this respect, it reveals the artist’s interest in architecture and light, a topic of enduring resonance in her work as seen in the landmark exhibition in Chicago in 1992, ‘Everybody Needs at Least One Window’.
