Rebecca Sharp’s poetic oil paintings speculate on landscapes — in part topographical, in part psychological. Using meditation, Sharp creates surreal images from the unconscious which seem enveloped in an aura of mystery and fantasy.

This work by Lewis Miller was created for his exhibition ‘Curtains’ at Aird’s Lane Bricks Space, Glasgow, in which he is showing a body of paintings that interact with the distinctive architecture of the gallery. Resembling film stills, a paused moment suggests possibilities of what happened before this frame and what is to come in the next one.

Secundino Hernández's varied and energetic painting practice resists easy characterisation. In his works, you might recognise a physicality of mark-making that recalls Action Painting, the figuration of cartoons, or passages evoking other painterly precedents. Often his paintings feature intricately structured compositions that mix strong linear elements and rich bursts of colour.

Kang-So Lee

Emptiness-11154, 2011 

Acrylic on Canvas


Presented by Gallery Hyundai
, B6


Kang-So Lee, Emptiness, 2011. Abstract painting of black gestural marks on light ground.

Lee Kang-So (b. 1942) is an indelible presence in the history of Korean contemporary art. Lee’s recent paintings are composed of concise yet graceful brushstrokes, evoking traditional East Asian philosophical ruminations on the canvas. In his paintings, ‘emptiness’ acts as a compositional element in dialogue with the lyrical mark-making.

Oil on canvas

$ 1,100,000

Alice Neel, Irma Seitz, 1963. Portrait of an elegant woman sat on a chair smoking.

This portrait by Alice Neel (b. 1900, Pennsylvania; d. 1984, New York) depicts Irma Seitz, an artist and philanthropist. Seitz adopts a confident pose for the artist, Neel pays great attention to the sitter’s sophisticated attire and jewellery.
