Marking her first major print project and her first exhibition with Cristea Roberts Gallery, Himid has made twenty-four hand-painted screenprints, working with master printer Magda Stawarska. Each work on paper, characterised by Himid’s distinctive bold patterns and vibrant colours, features enlarged details from engravings by the eighteenth-century British satirical artist, William Hogarth.

Cristea Roberts Gallery would like to thank Hollybush Gardens for their generous collaboration and support of this project.
This exhibition is closed over Easter 7 - 10 April 2023.

6 – 8pm, Thursday 23 March 2023
Join us on Thursday 23 March for Art After Dark. As part of the West End Gallery Hop, we will be joining other major galleries in Mayfair, St. James’, Soho and Fitzrovia and opening our doors late.
The event is free, just drop in between 6 - 8pm to see Lubaina Himid: Alla Prima/Cross Hatch and Sensing Abstraction.
"The process of making these prints with Magda Stawarska was exhilarating. The paintings on paper, some fast and wet, some laborious and slow, were paired with the Hogarth engraving details like horses and jockeys or spirits and mixers; the dream for the outcome was always measured but risky, hopeful yet perilous."
