Not Now will be an exhibition of recent resin sculptures and drawings by Alexander Massouras. The different media are connected by themes of time and fragmentation, and link to work the artist is showing simultaneously at Kettle's Yard. The exhibition's title comes from a series of drawings of architectural ruins which share their fragmentary quality, while evoking a distinct and equally complex temporality. Alongside the drawings is a series of sculptures formed from fragments of dried oil paint suspended in resin; the captured flakes mimic characteristics of gestural painting but with the formal dissonance of a clinical aesthetic.

Alexander Massouras is an artist and writer. He has held research fellowships at Tate, the Paul Mellon Centre and the University of Oxford. His work is in UK and international public collections including the Ashmolean, the British Museum, the Fitzwilliam, the Metropolitan, the RISD Museum, and the V&A )
