Bowling & Gouk discuss Abstraction in Painting

Starting Friday, 24 November 2017 · 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm



Friday 24 November 6.30-7.30pm

Hampstead School of Art patrons and Tate Gallery artists, Alan Gouk and Frank Bowling OBE RA, titans of the Abstract Art world come together to discuss practices and the significance of  abstraction. This fascinating dialogue across time will include the development of post-war abstraction and the range of experimental gestures that characterised the post-60s era.

Alan Gouk is widely admired and respected as a pre-eminent abstract painter, and he has consistently produced paintings of exceptional quality which explore the architecture of art through colour and form. His work is in many collections, including the Tate.

Frank Bowling’s recent works continue to explore the nature and possibilities of abstract
painting, the diverse range of principles and processes explored across his career now converging and coalescing in dynamic new configurations of colour and form. Bowling continues to orchestrate the emotive potential of colours to communicate a visual experience of uniquely sensuous immediacy. Haus der Kunst in Munich is presenting Frank Bowling: Mappa Mundi, a comprehensive survey of large-scale paintings and Bowling’s work has recently been include in the Soul of the Nation exhibition at the Tate Modern. 

“It's a once-in-a-lifetime event. Two of the greatest abstract painters of our generation together in conversation for the first time ever. It will be revealing, stimulating and engaging."
- Estelle Lovatt, HSoA tutor and art critic for BBC radio and TV and SKY news.
