Cheyney Thompson at Sutton Lane Gallery

“New Works,” is an exhibition by Cheyney Thompson at the Sutton Lane Gallery in Paris of just that, new work. It is a small show, with four oil on canvas paintings, but it is a strong show with work that forms part of a larger project, some of which is included in the current Whitney Biennial. The paintings on view demonstrate Thompson’s ongoing investigations of commodity and the marketplace, uses of repetition and media imagery, and the practice of formalist and history painting. This is the artist’s first solo show with the Paris branch of Sutton Lane. The exhibition runs through April 12, 2008.
