Lisson Gallery is pleased to present a combined exhibition of works by Carmen Herrera (Cuba) and Peter Joseph. Drawing from its precise linear quality and geometric distillations of colour, Carmen Herrera’s work has only recently come to the attention of art historians and collectors.
Her show at Lisson Gallery will focus on paintings created in the 1980’s and 1990’s and follows Ikon Gallery’s landmark 2009 solo show.
Known for his two-colour, tonal canvases of precise, carefully considered hues, Peter Joseph’s work exists within self-imposed, specific structures and parameters – the
effect being one of unlimited freedom confined within the parameters of a framed construct. In recent decades Joseph’s work has displayed a shift towards compositional improvisation, creating a new sense of freedom that exists outside of the geometry or ‘architecture’ of his earlier work.
