A NEW KITCHEN SINK
Feb 23 - Mar 24, 2017
The so-called Kitchen Sink Painters depicted life under austerity in postwar Britain, and dealt in accumulation: a loyalty to detail (the way a join works in a cheap flat matters); an aversion to editing (a half-finished bowl of cornflakes shouldn’t be finished or filled); a building-up of paint (work it until it takes on its weight in the world). In the 1954 essay that christened the school, David Sylvester described their work as 'inventory'. Take what’s on the table. That’s our life.

I HAD THE LANDSCAPE IN MY ARMS
Feb 23 - Mar 29, 2018
osh Lilley is pleased to present I Had the Landscape in My Arms, a group exhibition of new international sculpture.
The title of this show is abbreviated from Helen Frankenthaler: “I had the landscape in my arms as I painted it. I had the landscape in my mind and shoulder and wrist.” Formally and conceptually, the six artists in this exhibition employ aesthetics of compression, framing and encapsulation — of having the landscape in one’s arms, and squeezing it into form. Sculpture as paté, aspic, bundle, or jigsaw. A careful containment; some gentle pressure.
With Holly Hendry, Anne Libby, Nevine Mahmoud, Sarah Pichlkostner, Annabeth Rosen, Kathleen Ryan.
