Coles started out in the art world as a gallery director for Anthony d'Offay, opening her own gallery, Sadie Coles HQ in 1997. She made her name by being one of the first champions of Sarah Lucas (one of the original YBA's), and has some of the scene's hottest properties on her books including 2005 Turner Prize nominee Jim Lambie, figurative American painter John Currin and the late Angus Fairhurst recently adding Darren Bader, Helen Marten and Jordan Wolfson. The gallery has mounted a number of off-site projects in different locations and is currently based on South Audley Street although they’ll be on the move again when it opens a new space in Sep 2013.

For his latest exhibition, the American artist presents eight new paintings that continue his intrigue of reducing recognizable images and objects into flat simplified forms. These are shown alongside ceramic sculptures, a new departure for Korty.
