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 AdvisoryPerspectives 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.
