The survey exhibition Paul Boston: Stone Clouds features work from the 1980s to today is now open at Heide Museum of Modern Art. Exhibition curator and Heide Museum of Modern Art director Lesley Harding states that “Boston’s quiet, thoughtful paintings and drawings investigate space, light and materiality rather than representing figures or objects in the world, and over time his visual language has slowly transitioned from a type of hieroglyphic vocabulary, through a minimal or reductive phase, to the more complex and layered illusionistic forms of recent times. Throughout he has adhered to a sophisticated, subdued palette and a resolution that his images operate beyond logical thought and intended meaning.”

An impressive publication to accompany the exhibition will be available from the Heide Museum of Modern Art Shop soon.
