An exhibition of work by three ground breaking, innovative explorers of abstraction, Terry Frost, John Hoyland and Albert Irvin.
Frost’s burning desire to become a painter came from 4 years of incarceration in a German POW camp. Inspired by the “birds so free and the trees and the clouds,” Terry turned a time of misery and despair into the seeds of something pure and positive with the encouragement of fellow prisoner and artist Adrian Heath. This was the start of six decades of imaginative exploration and innovative productivity…A ceaseless search for ‘pure belters’ and ‘absolute snorters.
Hoyland is a maker of evocative images. His disposition to the grandly visionary-poetic is rare in English painting, as is the heroic scope of an ambition that takes him again and again to the very extreme of what painting might achieve.
Irvin’s paintings have a restless energy and freshness that communicate ‘an artist in love with his chosen activity’ (Paul Moorhouse).
