Essay by Tim Barringer with an introduction by Nicholas Serota.
Exhibition catalog: New York, Sperone Westwater, Sept. 12-Oct. 27, 2018.
Includes bibliographical references.
Sperone Westwater is pleased to announce Malcolm Morley: Tally-ho, the sixth solo show devoted to the late London-born artist, widely hailed as among the most pioneering figures of his generation. On the occasion of his 1983 Whitechapel exhibition "Malcolm Morley: Paintings, 1965-82," Morley was the recipient of the inaugural Turner Prize in 1984. The gallery exhibition will feature recent paintings dating from 2015 through 2018, created before his passing in June at the age of 86. "Over the past thirty years Morley continued on a path that took him on a searching and distinctive examination of the art of painting," writes Sir Nicholas Serota in a tribute in the exhibition catalogue. Morley ranged, over the course of his five-decade career, through styles including abstraction, photo-based realism, neo-romanticism, and neo-expressionism. The paintings in the upcoming exhibition, mostly dating from the last three years of his life, principally dwell on medieval knights in armor, painted in bold hues, most of them based on constructed paper models that were among his most favored inspirations.--Gallery Website.
