Huguette Caland @ Tate St Ives

24 May 2019 - 1 September 2019
Tate, St Ives,

After moving to Paris from Beirut in 1970, Huguette Caland achieved artistic recognition with her exuberant and erotically charged paintings that challenged traditional conventions of beauty and desire. The female physique is a recurrent motif in her work, often painted like landscapes with voids and mountain-like forms. Shifting between figuration and abstraction, large, colourful canvasses and detailed drawings from the 1970s and 1980s explores the delicate balance between the suggestive and the explicit that Caland creates in her work.
