His work has been praised by critics in The Independent, Modern Painters and Art Review. Simon Callow has called him ‘one of the most individual and complete artists of our time' and Nicholas Usherwood in Galleries has described his work as ‘reflective, expressive painting of the highest order.’
For the past two years Clive Hicks-Jenkins has been making a series of fourteen screen prints based on the mystical medieval poem, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, using Simon Armitage’s 2007 translation published by Faber & Faber. The work has been a collaboration with Daniel Bugg, whose Penfold Press has produced and published the editions of prints. January will see the second and concluding Gawain themed exhibition at Martin Tinney Gallery, with all 14 prints on show, accompanied by art historian James Russell’s insightful observations on the images. The studies and paintings made in the process of creating the prints will be included in the exhibition.
