Abstract Colour at Marlborough is coming to an end. I found it an incredibly inspirational exhibition. Lewis Dalton Gilbert's curation was spot on and the show featured a couple of my favourite artists, as well as a friend and fellow Bristol painter Joe Warrior Walker. Marlborough have published a video of a discussion between Lewis Gilbert, Amy Sherlock and Laura Smith about the show's themes and concurrent, themetically-overlapping exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery Action, Gesture, Paint. The video is here – it led me on a Gillian Ayres treasure hunt.
People like to understand. I wish they wouldn't. I wish they'd just look!
