About this deal

No matter the setting, the country or the era, Gruyaert deploys a luminous alchemy suspended in time.

The green walls the red chair are a compositionally wonderful pairing, the frame within a frame of the glassless window isolates the narrative outside. Although Cyprus is a relatively small island, its position in the East Mediterranean has always given it strategic importance beyond its size.Richard Smith (1931-2016) was one of the most original painters of his generation, and one of the most underrated. Between them is another window looking to a subway platform on the far side where two nuns talk to a woman and a young boy.

He photographs things we’ve all seen – think about TV Shots, his documentary/commentary on British society made of photographs of television screens – but never seen quite the way he does. It is impossible, looking at this picture, to confidently place where everything in the image is in relationship to each other.There is so much going on in all these images and the result is not confusion as much as a nuanced and sophisticated complexity.
