New exhibition 

We are delighted to present the first solo show of paintings by Terrell James at Cadogan Contemporary. 

Walter Hopps, the legendary Curator and Founding Director of The Menil Collection, viewed James as being among the finest gestural abstractionists working in Texas and as one of the best in the United States. Hopps stated, “she has mastered a lyrical freedom usually seen in watercolor rather than in oil. Although articulated line is often structurally important, the paintings are primarily built of patches and fluid areas of colour.” 

The exhibition features work from 2009 to the present which has been chosen to give the best glimpse into James’s body of work.

Her use of gesture and line and the multi-leveled exploraiton of abstraction have created a stunning selection of paintings.
