London: Ryan Hewett @ The Unit

Ryan Hewett - Order

South African artist Ryan Hewett is returning to London for a third solo show at the Unit London called ‘Order‘.

Moving away from his chaotic creative process of construction and destruction towards a more considered and confident approach, the new body of works includes self-portraits, portraits of Lucian Freud, Egon Schiele, Marcel Duchamp, Samuel Beckett and Audrey Hepburn and, for the first time ever, landscapes.

While paint is still applied impasto – brushes and masks are employed alongside the palette knife to create hard lines and graded blocks of colour.  While representing a significant step change for the artist, Hewett’s new works retain the unsettling beauty for which he has become renowned.
