New York-based painter Ellen Altfest presents her first solo exhibition of paintings in a UK public gallery, at MK Gallery from tomorrow.

Her works might be intricate, but her titles are quite the reverse, or as the press release sums up have a ‘blunt descriptiveness’ about them.

Previous pieces have included Gourds, Two Logs, Green Plant, Penis and Torso.

The exhibition will include early paintings of rocks and trees in the landscape, paintings of plants and gourds in the studio, and works from a series of male nude studies that the artist began back in 2006.

There will be plenty of time to get an eyeful as the show continues through to May 31.
