The Show is Over @ Gagosian


When most people think about art they think about painting. The Gagosian believes however, that the era of painting is over and presents us with a more abstract view of art.

The show is a modern look at abstraction. However, I think the title is wrong. Many of the images do in fact involve paint. This paint may not be within the lines of classical art but it is still paint nevertheless. The show has not ended, rather it has changed.

The show is wonderfully diverse and includes work from Cy Twombly, Ed Ruscha, Roy Lichtenstein, Gerhard Richter and Richard Serra to name but a few. The work on display is light, colourful and expressive. A twentieth century delight!

The Show Is Over is on display at Gagosian, Britannia Street until November 30
