An exhibition of paintings by the late Scottish artist Alan Davie CBE. From the late 1940’s, Davie’s artistic career spanned many decades and each has been represented by exhibitions at Gimpel Fils. The exhibition coincides with the gallery’s 70th anniversary.
The exhibition concentrates on a specific decade, the seventies, a decade in which the artist moved to a new phase. Abstraction no longer dominated and in its place, Alan Davie explored the use of space, making reference to it from two points of view. First, he depicted depth and perspective, using the structures developed during the Renaissance, e.g. converging lines; fore, middle and backgrounds; shading; and the depiction of objects within the painted space. Davie painted a series of works around the theme of ‘Ideas for a Children’s Wall’, which grew out of a mural work he painted for his daughter’s room.
