Varda Caivano

Victoria Miro

Opening 9 September – 3 October 2015

Victoria Miro’s third solo exhibition by Varda Caivano. A selection of recent paintings that demonstrate Caivano’s capacity to strike a subtle balance between the materiality of paint and its emotional and figurative resonances. her deftly composed, gestural forms at once irreducible and infinitely evocative. There is the lively feeling that these surfaces are the composite expression of actions rooted in the bodily logic of inhabiting space.

Marc Quinn: The Toxic Sublime

White Cube

Opening 15 July – 13 September 2015

White Cube presents an exhibition of new works by Marc Quinn. Quinn’s first at White Cube London since 2010, includes two new bodies of work and is the culmination of two years of investigation into natural phenomena and our distanced and complex relationship with the environment. ‘The Toxic Sublime’ series are distorted, three-dimensional seascapes that blur the boundaries between painting and sculpture. Alongside these paintings, a new series of sculptures, minimal arcs in stainless steel, including one measuring over 7m long, form part of a body of work titled ‘Frozen Waves’. These primal, gestural shapes originate from the remnants of shells, eroded by the endless action of the waves.
