We may have our feet firmly in the digital age, but paper will never lose its appeal. Put it on Paper is an exhibition presented by Eleven Gallery which is dedicated to works on paper. The show brings together all the different ways that artist Natasha Law uses paper in her practice: through ink drawings, screen printing and large scale gloss paintings on paper. Having always made works on paper alongside her paintings, Law deftly explores the possibilities of the medium with ease and adroitness. She leaves pencil marks on the aluminum or allows sections to remain untouched by paint, giving viewers a sense of art-in-process.

Put It On Paper also includes a number of Law’s larger paintings on paper. In Head in the Clouds, an elongated torso is caught in the moment of discarding a top; the neutral tones of the body contrasting against the saturated gloss paint. Law has also become well known for her figurative works of females often in an act of undress, provocatively capturing these fleeting moments of both vulnerability and intimacy.

The show will run from 13 June to 6 September.

Eleven, 11 Eccleston Street, London SW1W 9LX
