Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present Deborah Roberts’ second solo exhibition at the gallery, ‘I have something to tell you’. The show features new paintings dominated by black backgrounds and some of the largest works the artist has ever made. Simultaneously powerful and vulnerable, heroic and insecure, Roberts’ subjects reveal how systemic racism, gender politics and western beauty standards shape the way Black children grow up.
Curated by Katy Hessel, art historian and founder of The Great Women Artists, and artist Deborah Roberts, ‘From Near and Far’ features over twenty works, many of which have never been shown before. Bringing together 16 contemporary female artists, the exhibition focuses on collage as a concept and an art form; from the traditional method of splicing together imagery to amalgamating figures, forms, gestures and viewpoints. The artists are united by a shared interest in figuration.
Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present its first solo exhibition with Caroline Walker. The British artist presents a new body of work that traces the daily life of her sister-in-law Lisa as she becomes a mother.

Drawing on photographic source material, her paintings blur the boundary between objective documentary and personal experience.

Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present its first solo exhibition with British artist Holly Hendry. Exploring the idiosyncrasies of the human body, Hendry’s sculptures and installations take formal inspiration from machinery and diagrammatic depictions of anatomy. Expanded casting methods are central to the artist’s process in which she uses an array of materials like steel, Jesmonite, silicone, ash, charcoal, lipstick, chewed gum, soap, foam, marble and grit. Her new work challenges our perception of the neat distinction between our physical bodies, emotions and mechanisation.
Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present its first solo exhibition by British artist Sarah Ball.
