NEW WORKS BY MATTHEW HAWTIN: Matthew Hawtin, in his first solo show at SB Contemporary continues his exploration of line, form and colour with a new body of work produced on the occasion of this exhibition. Working with his signature “torqued” canvases, Hawtin has created a new installation of paintings, exploring the randomness of placement and the notion of visual noise while investigating the dialogue that occurs between the work and the space. Alongside the paintings will be a selection of drawings, an integral part of Matthew’s practice used in the development of his work. Matthew’s work sits within the historical canon of minimalist abstraction with his focus on hard-edge and colour field painting using a precise and personal palette within his aesthetic language.
