Paintings by the brilliant Megan Rooney grace the walls of Thaddaeus Ropac for the artist's first solo show in London in five years.⁠⁠

Highly intuitive, her contemporary reinvigoration of mid-century abstraction—often spreading beyond the confines of her canvases—has seen the curatorial demand for the London-based artist skyrocket. ⁠⁠

In a recent Ocula Advisory Perspectives piece, Laurie Barron explored Rooney's intuitive methods, her new series of works on paper for the show, and ⁠⁠Hans Ulrich Obrist's praise for her story-telling abilities.⁠⁠
