09/10 - Gorky at Tate

10 February – 3 May 2010

These works - particularly the drawings - talk about the 'space between objects as well as the objects".

"Works such as Waterfall 1943 are evocative, layered, and translucent, with a liquid glowing quality. Gorky's characteristic paintings of this final period include biomorphic forms in strong colours, shifting abstract elements and the energetic line that he developed in his drawings. They capture a sensual enjoyment of landscape as well as the mood and memories that the subjects can evoke."
