Tanya Leighton is pleased to present a curated feature of newly finished works by a selection of the gallery’s artists.
These new and recent works, across a variety of medium and scale, would have been the foundation of the gallery’s presentation at Art Basel this June. In light of the event’s cancellation, we are proud to be sharing our artists’ unique perspectives with you in our first online Viewing Room.
We hope that this new platform provides an authentic experience for you to encounter and enjoy the works of many of our artists.
I began making the rubber plant paintings 8 years ago and it is a subject, with varying degrees of intensity, I keep returning to. Restricting oneself to adding slow, meticulous pictures to a culture of much higher speed images can breach a gap where formal considerations and external reference combine to produce an image of pertinent specificity and rigour.
