John Hoyland: Power Stations
Paintings 1964 –1982
Paintings are there to be experienced … [they] are not to be reasoned with, they are not to be understood, they are to be recognised. – John Hoyland, 1979
John Hoyland (1934–2011) is one of Britain’s leading abstract painters. Renowned for his intuitive manipulation of colour, form, line and space, Hoyland emerged at the forefront of the abstract movement in Britain in the early 1960s, and remained an energetic and innovative force within the field, until his death in 2011.
‘Power Stations’, Newport Street Gallery’s inaugural exhibition, presented a selection of Hoyland’s large-scale works dating from 1964 to 1982, displayed throughout all six of the gallery’s exhibition spaces. The first major survey of the artist to be presented since 2006, ‘Power Stations’ spans a pivotal period in Hoyland’s career, punctuated by his first solo museum show, at the Whitechapel Gallery in 1967, and his defining retrospective at the Serpentine Gallery (1979–80).Pharmacy 2 – Damien Hirst’s new restaurant in collaboration with Mark Hix – is open to visitors to the exhibitions during the day, and evening diners when the gallery is closed. Serving classic British and European food, the menu reflects Hix and Hirst’s shared passion for quality food made from fresh ingredients.Whilst the gallery hosts exhibitions of work from Hirst’s collection, the restaurant features site-specific pieces from a number of the artist's own series, including the Medicine Cabinets and butterfly Kaleidoscope paintings. Designed entirely by Hirst, Pharmacy 2 also has etched glass windows depicting DNA strands, marble inlayed flooring and a bar that incorporates a stainless steel and glass vitrine.Vanilla black Kennington - Nice coffee place with a backyard near by.. Kennington -
