Recently described as an ​“abstract painter of figurative mood,” Katy Moran enlists a wide scope of mark-making to conjure different atmospheres in each painting, every chosen surface being readymade.

Modern Art is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new paintings by Katy Moran. This is Moran’s fifth solo show with Modern Art and opens during Condo weekend in London.

The abstraction of Moran’s paintings exists in a unique place wherein pictorial allusion and material obduracy find peaceful accord. In each work, Moran’s finely tuned techniques conjure scenes that can sometimes be suggestive of landscape, still life or portraiture while exploring color, composition and gesture. Her titles, similarly, are at times literal, random, and autobiographical, almost moving freely with the gestures in each painting.
