Until Friday 21 December

Ilse D'Hollander at Victoria Miro Mayfair

Ilse D'Hollander's work shows a lyrical line that is architectural, even geological, in its deep reading of landscape. Had she lived (she died in 1997 at the age of 28) she would, possibly with the right advice and support, to have worked on a larger scale perhaps, have become the equivalent of, say, a Rothko - abstractor, colourist, shape shifter, master narrator. Her work achieves minimalist perfection. Well, go and see her.

D'Hollander trained at Antwerp's Institute of Fine Art and in Ghent. That heritage shows. Indeed, I can't do better than to quote David Anfam from the book, Ilse D'Hollander, on sale now at the gallery.

'She upheld a lineage as venerable as Dutch landscape painting of the Golden Age and as modern as Piet Mondrian's sparse compositions . . .'.
