Again features artworks where repetition, obsession or meditation, are key elements to the artist’s process, sometimes obvious in the resulting artwork, sometimes not. Whether what compels each is expressed as a life-long obsession with a subject, such as the bird for Jean-Luc Mylayne, or a repetitive action, as seen in prints by Sol LeWitt and Agnes Martin, or a meditative practice that results in an object like Susan York’s hand-polished solid graphite sculptures, the artists in this exhibition repeat themes, motions, motifs and materials again and again, over and over.
This show is open from 20 April - 16 June 2013.
