10 July - 29 July

Sheila Girling, who died in 2014 aged 90, was an artist whose vibrant oils, watercolours, papercuts and collages were infused with a Modernist spirit and the vivid style of the American ‘colour field’ abstract painters. She explored colourful abstraction and enjoyed collaborating with her husband, the sculptor Sir Anthony Caro, once describing their marriage as a ‘64-year conversation about art’.
Nicholas Serota, the director of the Tate, has observed: ‘Over a long career she developed a distinctive personal language to explore the territory between abstraction and reality’. Sheila Girling sought inspiration from the playful collages and canvases of Matisse and Miró. Landscapes, still lives and interiors were captured in her vibrant palette.
