Circles and oval forms are a strong theme within The Pier Arts Centre’s collection, especially in the work they hold by Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth and Peter Lanyon. The delineated and formal structure of Cinematic will allow connections to be made between key paintings and sculptures within their core Collection. This conversation between works that represent a historic high point in British Modernism and the concerns of artists working today is central to the way the Pier Collection has developed over the last ten years.
The work will also add to the Pier’s collection of Scandinavian art and will significantly strengthen the group of works by contemporary women artists that have been built up around works by Barbara Hepworth.
