Jerwood Gallery is delighted to welcome Turner Prize Winner (2002) Keith Tyson to the gallery in January to launch our 2017 exhibition programme.

About

Turn Back Now will feature a selection of works from Tyson's Studio Wall Drawings series that form a visual diary of his practice over the past 20 years - many of which have never been publicly exhibited before.

Brighton-based Tyson says, “I began making Studio Wall Drawings in 1997 when I was sharing a studio with four other artists in South East London where wall space was scarce. I could pin a single large sheet of watercolour paper to a board and scribble down notes, ideas and sketches."

“Over time I began to think of these drawings more as works in their own right, existing somewhere in-between a sketchbook, a journal, a poem and a painting - I found that I could work unhindered by the self-conscious restraint I'd often felt while working on canvas."

“The nature and style of the drawings has changed dramatically over the last 20 years, just as I have. Although each drawing records a specific moment from my life, as a whole, they also reflect societal changes over that time too...It has become commonplace now to post daily pictures and accompanying texts on one’s digital ‘wall’  but I still am constantly surprised and rewarded by this simple practice of working daily on paper.”
