CHANNING HANSEN : MORPHOGENESIS
Nov 16 - Dec 21, 2018
Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new, large-scale works by American artist Channing Hansen. Hansen's paintings comprise abstract, hand-knitted constructions stretched over wooden frames. Developing his longstanding interest in the crossover between craft, science and technology, this new body of textiles is the most technically complex the artist has made to date. The exhibition takes the late work of Alan Turing, WWII code breaker, and father of computer science, as its inspiration. Turing's theory of ‘morphogenesis' hypothesised how patterns and structures such as stripes, spots, and spirals can form spontaneously in nature through genetic abnormalities. Inspired by Turing's biological principle, the design of Hansen's paintings in the exhibition are produced by a unique computer algorithm that is able to generate potentially infinite combinations of colour, fibre, and knit.

GED QUINN
Nov 21, 2019 - Jan 20, 2020
A solo exhibition of new paintings by British artist Ged Quinn. This is the third show at the gallery for the Cornwall-based painter and comprises a new body of work in which Quinn creates a monodrama from the point of view of a wandering protagonist. Marking a significant development in the artist's practice, the exhibition pairs large scale romantic landscape paintings with smaller portraits and intimate pastoral scenes. Rendered in thinly applied layers of oil on linen, these wintry images evoke the feelings of the isolated wanderer.
 
Quinn's new paintings derive from the poetry of German lyric poet Wilhelm Muller, English Romantic poet William Wordsworth and Carl Jung's partially autobiographical book ‘Memories, Dreams, Reflections'. They also relate to a series of rare watercolours depicting landscapes by Albrecht Dürer.
