Spring Collection:

Six paintings chosen by Lynne Strover
for her Cambridge Gallery, following her recent studio visit.

The following is an extract of the 'blog entry on her website.


When Lynne visited me in Cornwall just after Christmas, I was delighted when she spotted a series of small canvases on my studio window sill.

The art dealer Larry Aldrich (1906 to 2001) might have deemed them "suitcase paintings" i.e. those that could fit in his suitcase. This was indeed the title of an exhibition held in Chicago in October 2008 of small-scale Abstract Expressionism.

Abstract Expressionist paintings are often thought of as large scale and holding iconic presence, but as Robert Motherwell quoted, "It's possible to paint a monumental picture that's only ten inches wide, if one has a sense of scale, which is very different from a sense of size."

This small group of four abstract paintings were sitting quietly and yet formed their own focal point, their own dialogue through their physical size, palette and gestural mark making. The viewer has to peer into their interiors, exploring the bold brush strokes made on a minute scale, compared to those in my larger works. The smaller paintings have to be compact, tight and economic in their language.

When one looks at reproductions of paintings in photographs or on a computer screen it is often difficult to tell their size and one often imagines the scale of the work differently. Many a time I find people are surprised when they see my paintings in the flesh, exclaiming, "Oh! I quite thought that painting was tiny," or, "Wouldn't it be amazing if you did that on a larger canvas."

Such is the excitement of working on different scales, the small paintings are glimpses or snapshots of what is going on elsewhere in the studio. Small studies that become objects in their own right, demanding a presence of their own.

The titles come sometime after completion, with these four abstracts suggesting coastal and especially Sussex landscape. The chalky white and grey reminiscent of the English Channel, and 'Skylark' speaking to me of listening to their shrill melodious song whilst walking high on the ridge of the South Downs.

'Reine' and 'Soho Kitten' in contrast have emerged as part of an ongoing series of the imagined figure and the characters one can conjure up in paint.
