(1 July – 6 August, 2022) Cranston’s show at Modern Art includes large-scale paintings made with distemper and oil on linen and smaller works painted on hardback book covers. These paintings appear like fragments, capturing and preserving an illusion for us in an expansive world of their own. Each canvas offers a glimpse into the heart of a densely packed scene, guiding our attention through the oblique contours of Cranston’s storytelling.

(13 May – 18 June, 2022) Katy Moran’s abstract paintings conjure atmospheres – at times suggestive of landscape, still life, or figuration – through her exploration of form, gesture, colour and surface. While the legacy of Expressionism is evident in her painterly language, Moran’s work is firmly grounded in the materiality of painting as object. Her work has methodically concentrated on what kinds of alchemy can be offered up in the pre-existing surface of the readymade — found paintings, frames, or collage — as it combines with her own mark-making.
(23 March – 7 May, 2022) Mostly large-format and acrylic on linen, Mohammed Sami’s paintings depict glimpses of empty, built environments and interior still-lives that – while at first appearing mundane — carry a weight of autobiographical references and affective meaning.
