Two of the UK’s most exciting modern artists showcase specially-commissioned work in a new exhibition in Canning Town.

Conversation in Colour brings together painter Paul Huxley and young sculptor Holly Rowan Hesson for the first time with bold lines and colour as the result.

Though they work in different mediums, both artists create visual riddles in their work from planes of colour.

Mr Huxley will create two canvasses for the show at Arebyte Gallery, to be set against installation work by Ms Hesson.

Curated by Royal Society of Sculptors director Caroline Worthington, the exhibition on the London City Island development is part of contemporary arts fair Frieze London.

Alongside the show at the Botanic Square, Leamouth Peninsula gallery, works by sculpture heavyweights including Anthony Gormley and Gary Hume will adorn The Line from North Greenwich, a contemporary art walk opened in May 2015.

The Line hosts the exhibition, which runs from October 6 to 27.
