LONDON.- Marlborough Fine Art announces an exhibition of new work by Thérèse Oulton, which coincides with the launch of Women in Dark Times by Jacqueline Rose. The book is an analysis of some of the most creative women of the 20th and 21st centuries, the final chapter of which is entitled ‘Damage Limitation: Thérèse Oulton’, exploring Oulton’s oeuvre.

Elsewhere extends the already radical shift seen in Thérèse Oulton’s Territory paintings, which were exhibited in London in 2010 and consist of landscapes that threaten our sense of gravity and leave the viewer dislocated. Elsewhere disorients the viewer in different ways; it is unsettling both in its intense scrutiny of the infinite variety of the earth's surface and as it presents a lost intimacy of the spaces we inhabit.

As Jacqueline Rose writes in the catalogue introduction, “What does it mean to imagine the world destroyed? How to paint the earth lovingly but without false solace, a world in which love might be impotent? Elsewhere has another meaning. It refers, more simply but no less disquietingly, to rootlessness as the condition of our times.

“In paintings of often stunning luminosity, Thérèse Oulton manages to paint us into the darkest spaces of our times, displaying once again her exceptional, on-going relevance, for anyone trying to understand them.”

Alongside the exhibition of oils at Marlborough Fine Art, Marlborough Graphics will show Winter (I – X), a series of pencil drawings of alpine landscapes on Whatman paper. The salvaged paper watermarked and dated 1939 records the year in which the Whatman paper mill was bombed.

Thérèse Oulton was born in 1953 and attended St. Martin's School of Art, London from 1975 – 79 and then the Royal College of Art, London from 1980 – 83. She has exhibited widely in Europe and the USA since graduating from the Royal College of Art. Shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 1987, she is widely regarded as one of the leading abstract artists of her generation.
