“Timothy Taylor Gallery”

The Timothy Taylor Gallery is representing Ding Yi

The Timothy Taylor Gallery (London) is representing Chinese artist Ding Yi. Ding Yi is a major Chinese abstract painter. Inspired by calligraphy, he adopts a purely formal approach and keeps all narration at a distance in her painting practice. Minimalist in aspect, his works are colourful and geometric, produced by a precise, repetitive yet intuitive procedure. He was one of the first to explore the motifs of the cross and the grid via multiple variations. These purely formal motifs accord rationality to Ding Yi’s approach but he nonetheless leaves room for the unforeseen: “What I want most is for every piece to have some freedom. So I will allow some things to happen by chance.” Creating in the context of a post-Socialist China in the midst of industrial development, his paintings echo the boom of urbanism. His works are included in the collections of the Centre Pompidou, the Daimler Art Collection in Berlin, the dslcollection, the Samsung Museum of Art, the Long Museum and the Yuz Museum in Shanghai. A retrospective of her work is currently being hosted by the Hubei Museum of Art in Wuhan (China), titled, “Re-Appearance of Crosses”, from 23 April to 2 June 2016. Some of his works will also be available for viewing at the Art Basel Unlimited from 16 to 19 June 2016. Until 7 May, the Timothy Taylor Gallery is presenting an exhibition on Gabriel de la Mora, and preparing an exhibition on Dubuffet’s last works, to be held from 20 May to 2 July...

New Liliane Tomasko works at the Timothy Taylor Gallery

London, 2 July 2013, Art Media Agency (AMA). From 6 September to 5 October 2013, the Timothy Taylor Gallery is to host a solo exhibition of works by Swiss artist Liliane Tomasko. Entitled “Vestige”, the exhibition is to feature twelve canvases and works on paper. Each of the pieces began as a polaroid image, captured by the artist, which she then blurs and distorts. Inspired by the still life tradition, Tomasko’s works are also strongly influenced by her Hungarian heritage, her childhood in Switzerland and her nomadic way of life. Liliane Tomasko was born in Zurich and studied at Camberwell School of Art (1991-1992) and Chelsea College of Art (1995). In 1998, she obtained her MFA from the Royal Academy in London. She has been the subject of exhibitions at the New York Studio School (2010), the Zweigstelle in Berlin (2010), the Hotel des Arts in Toulon, France (2008 and 2011), as well as a major travelling solo exhibition at the IVAM in Valencia, Spain, which toured the country before moving to...
