Nov 22, 2018 - Jan 4, 2019
The artist will debut a new series
of large abstract oil paintings, accompanied by new figurative works on canvas and on paper.
Moritz’s first abstract work was exhibited at the gallery in 2015 as a part of her exhibition, Harvest. It was closely related to her figurative painting,
which employed photographs from post-war Soviet Union as source material. Continuing from this trajectory, Moritz’s explorations into abstraction
grew through the development of her use of colour and the exaggeration of her brushstrokes, eventually progressing into this autonomous new
series. These new large abstract paintings are intense compositions of dynamic impasto brushstrokes. Their vivid colours and forms evoke a wide
spectrum of visual and emotional associations.

ROBERT REED : SAN ROMANO SERIES
Apr 12 - May 18, 2019
Pilar Corrias is pleased to present the first solo exhibition in London of American artist Robert Reed (1938 - 2014) focussing on the San Romano Series executed between 1979 and 1984. This body of work consists of ten large paintings that combine colourful abstract forms with a sense of geometric composition and perspective derived from the Italian Renaissance. These works were a direct response to Paolo Ucello’s The Battle of San Romano (c. 1438 – 40) which Reed saw at the National Gallery in London in 1979. Uccello’s mid-fifteenth century masterpiece resonated with the formal questions Reed was engaged with in his abstract compositions. “The activity, the clash, the pomp, and circumstance… the organized confusion was something that I identify with very much,” he said in 1986. “I began to develop a vocabulary which became the vocabulary through which I speak now, but it came directly from those paintings.”
