Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new work by Los Angeles-based artist Channing Hansen. This will be the artist's first solo exhibition in the United Kingdom, as well as with the gallery. Hansen is a polymath, simultaneously pursuing interests in craft, science and technology. His large hand-knitted textiles are mounted on bare wooden stretchers and presented like paintings. Vibrant abstract forms undulate across the meticulously composed surfaces. For Hansen, the works are a kind of portal "suggesting a physical continuum in which a work of art exists in two, three, and even four dimensions": a frame through which to look at the world.
