Merlin James, Window

4 Sep 2021–9 Oct 2021


Kerlin Gallery are delighted to announce Window, an exhibition of recent paintings by Merlin James.

Window comprises of works predominantly completed over the last three years, made at James’s studio near the river Clyde in Glasgow. In these paintings James refers to the view of the river, but also to the surrounding buildings and the more interior life of their occupants. While some of the works seem to approach total abstraction, others are very specific in their representation.

This exhibition will coincide with a dedicated room of paintings in ‘Mixing It Up: Painting Today’, a survey of contemporary painting curated by Ralph Rogoff at the Hayward Gallery, London (9 September - 12 December) and the presentation of larger paintings titled ‘Day’ and ‘Night’ at Art Basel (23-26 September).
