"I am delighted to welcome a new exhibition by painter and HSoA patron Alan Gouk.

Since Alan's last exhibition here in 2014 a new generation of learners have engaged with his ideas and processes, a raft of requests to Tate Modern to arrange viewings of the 4.381 x 1.708 meter painting 'Cretian Premonition' in the national collection since 1987, and in our studios new work has developed with the physicality and directness typical of the American Abstract Expressionists that inspired Gouk, and which Gouk, amongst an exciting number of painters and sculptors continue driving British Abstract Expressionism forward

Geoffrey Smith, BBC Radio 3's jazz critic once described Gouk's pictures as "Rothko with a rhythm section". And Clement Greenberg, influential art critic of the mid-20th century, who Gouk met in New York in 1972, was, along with Anthony Caro, an important influence at that time.

Looking at Gouk’s paintings is a huge emotional experience, they make me feel like a giant."

Isabel H Langtry, Principal HSoA
