Keith Tyson: Turn Back Now opens Saturday, January 28 at the Jerwood Gallery. The exhibition puts on view a selection of Tyson's Studio Wall Drawings.

The exhibition will be on view from January 28 through June 4, 2017 at the Jerwood Gallery in Hastings, England. For more information, visi

Winner of the 2002 Turner Prize, Keith Tyson has said that in his "Contemporary Grotesques" series he is trying to "create a series of grotesques as contemporary gargoyles."
