Art Lyst: Taliban Relief Paintings and Crude Oil Silk Screens

Piers Secunda’s Taliban Relief Paintings were featured in Art Lyst in November 2011.

Aubin gallery is pleased to present Taliban Relief Paintings and Crude Oil Silk Screens, a major exhibition of new works by Piers Secunda. The exhibition will run from 17th November – 24th December 2011.

Secunda’s distinctive studio practice has pushed the development of paint as a fully operational material for 15 years. The works in this exhibition reveal a progressive and dynamic new direction, presented through a striking geo-political texture: sheets of paint shot by the Chinese army (2009) and more recently casts formed out of real Taliban bullet holes, results of suicide bomb attack sites in Afghanistan. With these works Secunda has pushed his practice to arrive at new forms, in his most complex and challenging works to date.
