S.E.A. is pleased to announce Autumn/Aki, an exhibition of new paintings by Ann Thornycroft. This exhibition opening will take place on October 15th between 4 pm to 6:30 pm, and will be on view through November 1st, 2022, at Kylin Gallery, Beverly Hills, California.
Ann Thornycroft was born in England and attended art school in London in the mid ’60s studying painting and printmaking. At the end of the decade, she immigrated to the U.S. and lived in New York. The stain paintings of Helen Frankenthaler and the grid paintings of Agnes Martin were dominating influences at this time and after moving to Los Angeles in 1972, she began doing watercolor grid paintings which matured into large canvases dominated by the grid. As time went on Thornycroft began to superimpose a grid over a freer, more lyrical background, creating a counterpoint between the two. This tension is the crux of her art.
For over fifty years, Ann Thornycroft has had numerous solo and group exhibitions, her work is included in a wide variety of public and private collections and has been featured in art magazines and newspaper art reviews.
“My impressions from the natural world inform my paintings. Growing up in the English countryside encouraged my curiosity about abstraction in natural forms, botany, and landscape painting. My work seeks to integrate painterly abstraction with organic architecture.” The artist elaborates that: “Essential to my working method is that I revisit my paintings and develop them over time. There is a continual accretion of layers, resulting in increasing complexity and depth. Out of the many layers, harmony emerges- a moment when all the layers are in balance.”
The gallery’s secondary showroom will display the works of the gallery's Japanese artist Yoshio Ikezaki; this is a collaboration between S.E.A. and Kylin Gallery.
