Fame & Promise II: Print Exhibition

11 May - 29 June 2019

A Modern Master print exhibition featuring twentieth century luminaries such as Sir Peter Blake, Sir Anthony Caro, Patrick Caufield, Sir Terry Frost, Bruce McLean and William Tillyer, whose bold and confident approaches to print making proved influential to their contemporaries and also to a generation of younger artists. Ben Allen’s screen prints occupy a space between street art, graffiti, abstraction, graphic design, pop culture, modernism and comic strips whilst Dan Baldwin’s unique take on the world contrasts reality and the world of imagination. Often striking commentaries on politics, current affairs and philosophical matters, and his style is often described as allegorical and dreamlike. Reoccurring topics include life and death, innocence, nostalgia and memory.
