Charles Tyrrell at Taylor Galleries


Tagged: ,

I visited Charlie Tyrrell’s exhibition of new work at the Taylor Galleries.
The work consisted of  small works (50x40cm) and and larger pieces (100x80cm) in oil on aluminum, closer inspection revealed scratch marks and incisions. The pieces had a certain meditative quality which I remember feeling when I saw Maria Simmonds Gooding’s  etched and inscribed works on aluminum at the RHA some years ago .
They evoke landscape which is somehow  at odds with the geometric grids which are Tyrrell’s  hallmark, and show how delicate the balance is between control and free expression.

The paintings made me think of the ‘freischwimmerosgut series’ of German artist Wolfgang Tillmans.
