> DESCRIPTION

In her distinguished career the painter Ellen Lanyon has explored a range of visual imagery, from the exotic manifestations of the natural world to material culture:  objects such as antique tools or kitchen equipment, somehow bridging the distance between categories through evocative titles and scrupulous examination of form.  On a broader level, her work reflects an experimental approach to painting and pleasure in its ability to re-present the world.  This exhibition brings paintings from 1969 to the present together with a selection of the found objects that fill her studio.
