Hurvin Anderson

Born in the UK and raised in the Caribbean before settling in the United Kingdom, Hurvin Anderson creates work embedded with the imagery, colors, and social history of his origins, as well as his early experiences of dislocation. His paintings and drawings are representational, but he typically disrupts their legibility with gestural marks or abstract patterns.

Petra Cortright

Bernard Frize

Bernard Frize is a French artist, well known for his experimental approach to painting. He was born in 1949, in Saint-Mandé, France. Referencing Minimalism, Abstract Expressionism, and Color Field, the artist mainly focuses on the mechanics of painting, exploring the bare minimal essence of painting, devoid of conception and aesthetic. Bernard Frize often works in series, following strict rules as to process and palette, and employs assistants in elaborately choreographed acts of painting.
