Peter Joseph: The Window Paintings

Opening: 4-6pm, 10 February 2023

“Paint is not just colour, it’s light and air that I’m trying to portray on the canvas, dark and light… I’m trying to paint the atmosphere, trying to paint light itself. My works are primarily sensualist in the sense of colour, light, tone.” –– Peter Joseph

Lisson Gallery is honoured to present a body of rarely seen paintings by the late British artist, Peter Joseph, in his debut solo exhibition in China. Created between 2006 and 2011, this selection of works marks a relatively brief yet pivotal phase in the artist’s career, which saw the transition from his widely recognised early geometrical and minimal ‘Border’ paintings (1980s – 1990s), to a series of freer and more openly lyrical works known as 'The New Painting' (2014 – 2020). As one of only a handful of artists to exhibit at Lisson Gallery during its inaugural year in 1967, Joseph was the gallery’s longest serving artist before his death in 2020, with over five decades of collaboration and friendship with the founder Nicholas Logsdail.
