About

Timothy Taylor Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new works by the Swiss born artist Mai-Thu Perret. As a means of investigating modernism's revolutionary potential, Perret has created a complex oeuvre that combines radical feminist politics with literary utopian texts and homemade crafts. The exhibition, Parade, will feature a series of new small gouache on panel paintings and a large fabric banner piece. Perret considers her reductive abstract paintings as signifiers that lack a referent - the elemental language employed in these compositions recall bygone systems that nevertheless seem to posit a residual meaning. Reminiscent of icons or Tantric paintings used for developing abstract visualization during meditation, these diminutive paintings suggest their own portability and a function outside the realms of art.
