Jerwood Collection

Since the Foundation’s purchase in 1993 of From my Window at Ditchling by Sir Frank Brangwyn, the Jerwood Foundation’s collection has grown steadily in stature and importance to include around two hundred British oil paintings and works on paper.

The Collection’s core areas are figurative and abstract works from between the First World War and the 1960s, and contemporary works by artists associated with Jerwood, including several winners of the Jerwood Painting Prize such as Craigie Aitchison, Maggi Hambling and Prunella Clough.

Keith Tyson Turn Back Now

KEITH TYSON TURN BACK NOW

  • 28 January — 4 June 2017

Turn Back Now will feature a selection of works from Tyson's Studio Wall Drawings series that form a visual diary of his practice over the past 20 years - many of which have never been publicly exhibited before.

Brighton-based Tyson says, “I began making Studio Wall Drawings in 1997 when I was sharing a studio with four other artists in South East London where wall space was scarce. I could pin a single large sheet of watercolour paper to a board and scribble down notes, ideas and sketches."

“Over time I began to think of these drawings more as works in their own right, existing somewhere in-between a sketchbook, a journal, a poem and a painting - I found that I could work unhindered by the self-conscious restraint I'd often felt while working on canvas."

“The nature and style of the drawings has changed dramatically over the last 20 years, just as I have. Although each drawing records a specific moment from my life, as a whole, they also reflect societal changes over that time too...It has become commonplace now to post daily pictures and accompanying texts on one’s digital ‘wall’ but I still am constantly surprised and rewarded by this simple practice of working daily on paper.”
