    Paul Tonkin's paintings are analogous to jazz in their improvisatory technique, simultaneity of pictorial events, allusions from the widest possible range of sources and strong but subtle colour combinations.
  • 23rd April - 23rd May 2009
    Peter Startup: The White Sculptures
    Works in painted wood and plaster, from the second half of Peter Startup's career. A strange and austere mix of the iconographies of still-life and classical antiquity, and a suble investigation, through the processes of casting, of the positive and negative spaces of real and reflected form.

    Douglas Abercrombie: A Painting Retrospective
    Poussin’s closing exhibition of 2008 surveys the work of Scottish abstract painter Douglas Abercrombie, showcasing the best of an immensely productive career. Abercrombie’s work displays an evolving and often exquisite approach to colour, and a surprising painterly touch, one which allows him to fashion “spontaneous passages of form with a sweeping fluidity which moves the eye compellingly across all areas of the painted surface - down a diagonal, around a perimeter, across a space. ”
  • 18th September - 25th October 2008

    A career review from the early Eighties onwards of the work of this distinguished abstract painter, characterised by experimentation, variation and renewal.

This show is the first in a projected series highlighting the variety and quality of three-dimensional work, both old and new, from artists whose careers began at St. Martin's during a period from the mid-Fifties to the mid-Eighties, and who all brought their own individual sensibilities to bear upon the shared pursuit of three-dimensionality in sculpture. Includes work by Phillip King, Tim Scott, Peter Hide, Katherine Gili, Anthony Smart and Alexandra Harley.

    Poussin Review 2006: Recent British abstract painting and sculpture
    Douglas AbercrombieAlan GoukRobin GreenwoodGeoff HollowVanessa JacksonDavid LendrumJohn McLeanMali MorrisFred PollockGeoffrey RigdenTim ScottAnne SmartPeter StartupPaul Tonkin
    Poussin Gallery was opened in September 2005 to show recent and new abstract painting and sculpture. The criteria for choosing what to exhibit were straightforward enough - we would show work that could sensibly be the subject of a reasoned and objective critique of its visual qualities, and that treated plastic and spatial values as pre-eminent. Our first ten shows are reprised in this exhibition of work from all the artists so far shown.
  • 26th October - 11th November 2006
    Short Circuit Since '79: Paintings by Vanessa Jackson

Well known as a lecturer and patron of various art causes, Jackson's own work is beginning to receive the exposure and critical acclaim it richly deserves. These highly charged, strongly coloured and robustly conceived works show an impressive technical commitment to the development of abstract paintings of real power.
  • 30th September - 21st October 2006
    Robin Greenwood: New Steel Sculpture
    New abstract sculptures from one of the founder/directors of Poussin, which redefine and extend the Modernist legacy of Caro's work from the Sixties. These sculptures explore the boundaries of large-scale formal and spatial values in three-dimensions, and have an original and sophisticated visual simplicity which yet avoids the banalities of Minimalism.
  • 7th September - 23rd September 2006
    Anne Smart: New Paintings
    New large abstract paintings which break with some of the accepted constrictions of recent abstraction by interrupting conventional rhythms of colour and form and rigorously experimenting with how painting is made.
  • 15th June - 1st July 2006

    Abstract paintings dealing eloquently with the nature and organisation of the coloured brushmark, with dissolving compositions and luminous spatial colour harmonies.
  • 18th May - 10th June 2006
    Tim Scott: Sculptures in Forged Steel
    Abstract sculptures from the Eighties and Nineties by this internationally recognised artist, who came to prominence in the Sixties with the "New Generation". From rejecting traditional sculptural materials and methods in favour of constructions in metal and plastic, Scott's work now brings a new aesthetic to bear on an age-old technique of forging steel. Despite showing extensively in Europe, this will be Tim Scott's first one-man show in London since 1979.
  • 27th April - 13th May 2006

  • 20th October - 12th November 2005
    Peter Startup: Sculpture
    “Metamorphic” sculptures from the Sixties by one of the finest sculptors of his generation, who died in 1976. Startup remains, even after close scrutiny, an enigmatic figure in British sculpture, who produced work of both subtlety and quality. This will be the first major showing of Startup's work for ten years.
  • 22nd September - 15th October 2005
    Mainstream Abstract Painting from the Seventies
    Douglas AbercrombieAlan GoukGeoffrey Rigden
    Inaugural exhibition at Poussin Gallery, featuring bold and articulate abstract painting from the Seventies by three of the leading exponents, who brought to bear their own original kind of engagement with the medium in a more plastic handling and an increased intensity of colour values, compared with their American peers.
