  • Overview
  • More Info

‘In February 2014 I had an exhibition of my early early work (1959 – 1970 ) at the Redfern Gallery, London. I have found in the past that reviewing my work in a major exhibition has brought about a change in direction. In this case, having the opportunity to review work I made 55 – 60 years ago, I felt that there were many avenues I had failed to explore in my youthful rush to make new work. I decided that I would make my future work based on the influences and ideas embedded in my paintings of the 1960’s. Those influences being mainly Constuctivism and it’s offshoots in the Bauhaus and De Stijl.

The paintings in this exhibition are spontaneous creations that have come about as a result of my revisiting this early work. Like the paintings the titles are mostly words I have created, although on occasions I have found words in books or on road signs that have appealed to me.’
