 'Abstract Storytelling' is the first solo exhibition by London artist Steven King. These new drawings, made over the past year, are at times intricate and meticulous and at others bold and expressive. The work in the exhibition shows the artist examining his position; temporally, geographically, and artistically. Inquisitive and reflective in tone, they are a means to translate ideas into something tangible, through a careful, if nonsensical, combination of observation and invention. The drawings progress, a nod to Hogarth and his use of sequential storytelling, and explore the expression of the self; excitable, suggestable, and sobering.

The exhibition contains two essays, 'Abstract Storytelling' by Brian Watkins and 'Look Again' by Joan Dawson . These authors approach the exhibition from different perspectives, and provide different insights to the artist's work.
