  • 7 June — 12 August 2017

Monique Frydman's abstract paintings are a vibrant embodiment of colour and light. Soft lines are produced through frottage, a technique for which the artist rubs pastel on to an unstretched canvas that has been placed over a tangle of cord or string, and completed by adding pigment to the surface. Elegant arabesques of lines created by this process blend into the colour-saturated canvas producing works of dazzling luminosity.

This exhibition, curated by Ziba Ardalan, is accompanied by a full programme of educational events aimed at engaging the public.
