Once described as powerful manifestations of the Abstract Sublime, Albert Irvin's monumental paintings, with their blazing hues and restlessly dynamic spaces are an abstract hymn to London, its architecture, energy, diversity and above all its people.
Since his conversion to abstraction in the mid1950's, Irvin has been exploring the possibility that non-representational painting can express profound emotion. By developing a visual language of painterly motifs, squares, circles, lines and crosses, his large colour saturated canvases derive from the experience of movement and time, rather than abstracted representations of specific events or places.
