Tim Van Laere Gallery is pleased to present Ryan Mosley's second solo exhibition, entitled Under Moon.
In the paintings of Ryan Mosley (°1980 Chesterfield; lives and works in Sheffield) time, place, history, the characters that populate them and the spaces they inhabit are all warped, distorted, thrown out of kilter, in states of fusion, disintegration and recombination. The figures he portrays in various ways merge or correspond with their backgrounds; the contours of their heads, jawlines, beards and hair and cheekbones flattening into a field of interlocking shapes. It is as if, in some hard-to-fathom way, the people Mosley portrays are the paintings they inhabit.
His works were internationally exhibited in exhibitions including Museum Sheffield, UK; Arp Museum Bahnhof Rolandseck, Remagen; Sadie Coles HQ, London; Musée d’Art moderne et contemporain de Strasbourg, Strasbourg; Museum of Modern Art, Moscow; Centre Pompidou, Metz; and Museum Ludwig, Budapest.
Opening Thursday 25 October 2018 from 6-9 pm.
