Oliver Osborne: On Swabian Hedonism
to Sat 9 Dec 2017

Tanya Leighton presents On Swabian Hedonism, Oliver Osborne’s first solo exhibition at the gallery.

He presents a group of new paintings that include elements of figuration, appropriation and abstraction. These new paintings have been made using oil, silkscreen, and embroidery. The imagery in the show has been drawn from a variety of sources, including a history of a 19th century mineral bath in Stuttgart, a comic co-created by the American cartoonists Brant Parker and Johnny Hart, and a selection of motifs that recur in Osborne’s work such as bread, pregnancy, apples and a young Angela Merkel.

Forthcoming and recent solo exhibitions include; Bonner Kunstverein, Bonn (2018); Peles Empire, Berlin (2016); Vilma Gold, London (2016); Gió Marconi, Milan (2015); Catherine Bastide, Brussels (2015).
