Virginia Overton at White Cube Mason's Yard

Until Saturday 14 March at 6pm

This is American artist Virginia Overton's first exhibition in the UK. In these new works, she displays a wonderful sculptural eye for the simple, telling, but large-scale gesture. Out of a series of arching whitewood planks braced against floor and ceiling, she produces a curved and wooded wall for the ground floor gallery that is as simple as it is elegant. As the picture shows, the installation interacts with light, here the daylight filtering in from the gallery's windows.

This work, like the other sculptures in this show, is for sale. The dimensions are 1327 x 647 x 438 cm. If you have the space and the means, I urge you to contact White Cube Mason's Yard. From the point of view of private or institutional collectors of American art, it would be sad for such a visceral work to leave the country. Customisation of all the works is possible.
