LONDON.- Eleven presents Put it on Paper, an exhibition dedicated to works on paper by Natasha Law. Focusing on paper as a medium, this exhibition brings together all the different ways Law uses it in her practice through ink drawings, screen printing and large scale gloss paintings on paper.

Law has always made works on paper alongside her paintings; the paper acts as a field for exploration and experimentation before she decisively transcribes the results onto aluminum sheets. Often Law will incorporate ideas she has discovered on paper into her paintings such as leaving exposed pencil marks on the aluminum or allowing sections to remain untouched by paint. Conversely, her paintings often lend themselves to her large scale paintings on paper where swathes of saturated gloss paint create a similar fluid surface from which her silhouettes emerge. Put it on Paper reveals the numerous ways in which working on paper is an integral part of her creative process.

The title Put it in Paper expresses the simple pairing of pen on paper which serves as the foundation for her work. A line drawing is always the starting point and it is often done directly from sessions with her models. Capturing the progression of movement through a series a sketches, she then selects individual ones to further develop.

This exhibition includes a number of new larger paintings on paper. In Pink and Green Blocks on Grey (2014) an elongated torso is caught in the moment of discarding a top; the neutral tones of the body contrasting against the saturated gloss paint. She exercises a certain amount of restraint- never overstating areas, instead she allows her forms to materialise through her descriptive lines and bold colours. Law has become known for her figurative works of females often in an act of undress, provocatively capturing these fleeting moments of both vulnerability and intimacy.

Natasha Law was born in 1970. She lives and works in London. Notable exhibitions include Dust in Their Eyes, Eleven, London (2012); Close/Closer, Eleven, London (2010); I Put My Finger on Your, Paul Smith Gallery, Tokyo, Japan (2009); and Romanticism Interrupted, The Viewing Room, Mumbai, India (2008)
