The Studio 1987

 

Timely show of Motherwell’s work at the Bernard Jacobson Gallery. Following on from the Abstract Expressionist show at the RA it was lovely to walk around a peaceful gallery and contemplate the well curated show.

Beautiful, airy, light, modern space… one of London’s amazing galleries tucked away representing an interesting collection of artists, Motherwell being one of them.

See this interesting article on abcrit by John Bunker on the Motherwell show….

She suggests that ‘midfulness techniques can aid an authentic encounter with an artwork, especially those of the Abstract Expressionists’.
