The Garden

Ryan Hewett

For ‘The Garden’, Ryan Hewett’s third solo exhibition with Unit London, the artist has incorporated a myriad of geometric structures, depicting abstract figurative forms and isolated environments, drawing from human experience and the natural world.

The eponymous hero piece, The Garden, lends its name to the title of the exhibition and can be viewed as a starting point for the artist’s evolving exploration of multi-dimensional landscapes and complex layering. The new body of work retains the heavily vigorous textural quality of Hewett’s distinctive earlier practice, alongside a juxtaposition of flattened angular shapes that draws the viewers’ focus back to the materiality and technique of traditional painting.

The forthcoming exhibition signals a transition towards more ambitious large-scale painting thanks, in part, to Hewett’s move to a new studio space in his hometown of Cape Town in September 2017. The Garden is 2 x 3 m, the largest the artist has worked on to date, taking six months to complete.
