William Tillyer - Mulgrave Tensile Works and Mulgrave Scrolls

In the Mulgrave Tensile Works, William Tillyer (b. Middlesbrough, 1938) has produced probably the most radical paintings of his career. Stainless steel wires strung across a metal frame and held in tension by turnbuckles support geometrically shaped areas of metal mesh, woven through with paint reflecting the colours of the North Yorkshire landscape, in which the artist has lived for most of his life.

The exhibition marks the launch of William Tillyer - A Retrospective, a major new monograph on the artist written by the celebrated Chinese American poet and critic John Yau and published by Rizzoli.
