ABSTRACT PAINTINGS AT BELGRAVIA GALLERY

20TH MAY UNTIL 17TH JUNE 2013 45 ALBEMARLE STREET LONDON W1S 4JL

PAINTINGS BURST WITH LUMINOUS COLOUR, EXPRESSING THE JOY OF LIFE,

AND DELIGHT IN THE NATURAL WORLD

Belgravia Gallery will be showing approximately twenty paintings in their Summer exhibition devoted to abstract art.

Three leading artists represented in the show are London based American painter Monroe Hodder, self taught Brighton born artist Dion Salvador Lloyd and Professor Dr. Maurice Cockrill RA.

Latest acquisition for this show are paintings by John Illsley, one of the founders of Dire Straits.

Monroe Hodder, in the words of a critic: ‘barely needs the natural light of a gallery, so brightly do her canvases burn with colour.’

She uses fields of tiered horizontal bands which ‘test the chromatic limits of abstract painting without eliminating associations to landscape and memory.’

Maurice Cockrill RA, who was Professor of Fine Art at Liverpool John Moores University, later appointed a keeper at the Royal Academy, has been described as ‘one of the most protean painters to have emerged in the UK since the second World War. He has ranged from photorealism to Expressionism and from sexually charged landscapes to mythological subjects and near abstraction.’

Dion Salvador Lloyd, engages with his internal dramas and feelings, his work is contemplative, and he draws his inspiration from music, light, nature, beauty and decay. He is determined to master the medium of paint, by exploring all its tactile possibilities.
