About

Our summer exhibition Refinding, brings together new and recent works by London-based artist Jessie Flood-Paddock, with the Oak Tree series of sculptures, drawings and prints by the celebrated 20th century sculptor, the late Kenneth Armitage.

In 2013, Flood-Paddock was awarded the Kenneth Armitage Fellowship, which enabled her to live and work in Armitage’s studio for two years. During her residency, Flood-Paddock was struck by Armitage’s work on oak trees produced between 1975 and 1986. Refinding brings this series together with existing and new work by Flood-Paddock, marking the 101st anniversary of Armitage’s birth and Flood-Paddock’s first exhibition in Leeds.

Flood-Paddock’s work has often been organised into sculptural environments, through which the viewer is invited to find their own path. Refinding features a significant new commission that fills The Tetley’s Leeds Beckett Atrium.

Refinding forms part of the Armitage Centenary programme in his home city, which also includes the exhibition Kenneth Armitage: Sculpture and Drawing of the l950s at the Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery (until l5 July).

A catalogue accompanying the exhibition will be published in June.
