‘Spectacular evidence of the survival of drawing as an art in the 21st century’

Jonathan Jones, selecting Keith Tyson at Jerwood Gallery, Hastings as No 1- This Week’s Best Exhibitions, The Guardian Friday 27 January 2017

Keith Tyson: Turn Back Now is now open and displays Tyson’s studio wall drawings, made over the last two decades and hung from floor to ceiling across the ground floor galleries. He says the work ‘documents the last 20 years of my life and everybody else’s’. Tyson’s rich artistic practice, encompassing painting, sculpture, drawing, machines and systems, shares a fascination with infinity, the nature of being and the origins of life.

Find out more about Turn Back Now in this video by Justin Lycett: An interview with Keith Tyson will feature on Radio 4’s Front Row on Thursday 2 February at 7.15pm.

The exhibition runs until 4th June 2017
