A new series of paintings that began life in summer 2010 will be on display to coincide with the artist's first major UK retrospective at Tate Modern.This new series evokes traditional still-life and reincarnates the unsettling objects that have appeared in previous sculptures and installations.

What the critics say
As well as offering a succession of modern masterpieces, the exhibition offers a unique record of turbulent period in history and art
The artist's love affair with pop music is explored in this hugely enjoyable exhibition
Blurs of irregular, knifelike forms that appear at once rocklike and insubstantial; towers of twisting matter that suggest the aftermath of a human presence rather than the presence itself.
A retrospective of Laura Knight's work at Penlee House should ensure that more people are familar with her lively paintings
