Gabriel Orozco: Thinking in Circles
1 August – 19 October 2013

The artist has, quite literally, been thinking in circles for this series of geometric works.
Rising to prominence in the early 1990s, Orozco is concerned with 'what it is to make art'.
Using his 2005 painting The Eye of Go as a starting point, he takes its circular motif and reorganises, restructures and redefines it, in order to create a series of brand new works.
The gallery says that, rather than attempting to examine the whole range of Orozco’s practice, this exhibition 'cuts a conceptual slice through it' so as it can look more deeply into the artist’s thinking and working process.
A series of large geometric works on acetate were made by Orozco in the mid 1990s, yet this is the first time they have been exhibited.
