From 17th May - 17th June 2013 we will hold an exhibition of Abstract paintings by American painter Monroe Hodder, Professor Maurice Cockrill RA and self taught Brighton born artist Dion Salvador Lloyd. We will be showing approximately twenty paintings by these three leading artists.
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.
