Object Light exhibition highlights

László Moholy-Nagy stated that ‘…abstract painting can be understood as an arrested, frozen phase of kinetic light display leading back to the original emotional, sensuous meaning of colour of which William Turner (1775–1851), the great English painter, was an admirable predecessor.’
