Painting on the Edge: A Historical Survey

Painting on the edge Stephen Friedman Gallery

‘Painting on the Edge: A Historical Survey’ brings together works by sixteen renowned masters and lesser-known artists from around the world and explores the radical approaches taken to painting in the post-war period. The exhibition focuses on artists who veered away from the traditional methods of painting by knotting or completely removing the canvas, using shaped stretchers, and testing alternative materials. Many have never been shown together before and this presentation aims to draw new and pertinent parallels between their practices. This will be the first time that Harmony Hammond, Sadaharu Horio, Tsuyoshi Maekawa, Kimiyo Mishima and Ted Stamm have shown in England.
