Art on show in Brighton and Hove & East and West Sussex

IN FOCUS: Marlow Moss ** 12 Oct 2013 – 23 Apr 2014 ** Jerwood Gallery, Hastings

This Tate touring exhibition features a group of works by Marlow Moss (1889-1958), now regarded as one of Britain’s most important Constructivist artists. The paintings, reliefs and sculptures, drawn from collections in the UK and Europe, are primarily concerned with an interrogation of movement, space and light.

Prior to the Second World War, Moss produced highly abstract painted compositions similar to the work of Mondrian, with whom she is often associated and who she was close to for much of her life. Later, her practice developed toward the production of all-white reliefs and sculptural works.

Moss lived and worked between Paris and Cornwall for much of her life, changing her name and permanently adopting a masculine appearance in 1919. Moss finally settled in Lamorna Cove in 1939.

The exhibition includes letters and photographs drawn from the Tate Archive, which offer a fascinating glimpse into Moss’ life.
