The opening exhibition is a revival of In a Silent Way with artists Anders Knutsson and Lesley Hilling. This has always been one of my favourite curated shows. The combination of organic wooden structures and gentle monochrome painting demonstrates a natural connection between artistic styles, both visibly and conceptually.

Knutsson’s paintings are a synthesis of Nordic and American culture, combining Minimalism, Abstract Expressionism and Northern Romanticism. Equilibrium and understatement are the foundation of everything Knutsson creates.

 

Hilling’s wall sculptures instantly recognisable for its organic, architectural forms and its understated elegance. In her practice there is a system of scouring the streets for materials, and sometimes destroying them before their transformation into sculpture. Lesley values nostalgia. Her house and her sculpture practice are testament to a strong attachment to the past. The recycling of materials has grown out of her core values.
