CHANNING HANSEN
Jun 8 - Jul 29, 2017
Private view Fri Jul 7 6pm - 8pm
Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new work by Los Angeles-based artist Channing Hansen. This will be the artist's first solo exhibition in the United Kingdom, as well as with the gallery. Hansen is a polymath, simultaneously pursuing interests in craft, science and technology. His large hand-knitted textiles are mounted on bare wooden stretchers and presented like paintings. Vibrant abstract forms undulate across the meticulously composed surfaces. For Hansen, the works are a kind of portal "suggesting a physical continuum in which a work of art exists in two, three, and even four dimensions": a frame through which to look at the world.

PAINTING ON THE EDGE : A HISTORICAL SURVEY
Jun 8 - Jul 29, 2017
‘Painting on the Edge: A Historical Survey' brings together works by sixteen renowned masters and lesser-known artists from around the world and explores the radical approaches taken to painting in the post-war period. The exhibition focuses on artists who veered away from the traditional methods of painting by knotting or completely removing the canvas, using shaped stretchers, and testing alternative materials. Many have never been shown together before and this presentation aims to draw new and pertinent parallels between their practices. This will be the first time that Harmony Hammond, Sadaharu Horio, Tsuyoshi Maekawa, Kimiyo Mishima and Ted Stamm have shown in England.
