Imi Knoebel is one of the most celebrated painters working anywhere in the world today. In this current exhibition we see a range of exquisite works on paper that show Knoebel's chromatic and compositional judgements across a number of series - from the reductionist Anima Mundi portraits to the hyper-animated Revolver paintings. In all these series we see Knoebel using colour in the most celebratory manner and using the gently destabilised grid as an organising frame on which to hang and arrange colour. That these grids themselves appear to be in motion only adds further to the volatility of the colours.
