LONDON.- Already acknowledged as one of the most
distinctive of the ╩╗Newspeak’ painters, British artist Ryan Mosley’s first major
solo exhibition opened at Alison Jacques Gallery.
Admired for
what Art Review has described as ‘hyperfigurative psychocubism’,
and an
approach to painting which is at once both historical and fantastical, Mosley’s
work simultaneously acknowledges a profound debt to the received genres and
traditions of art history and an exuberant willingness to subordinate such
categories to a uniquely personal painterly vision. On exhibit until 13
February, 2010.
