Free exhibition of Ikon founder David Prentice's recently gifted 1960s/70s large-scale triangle "field grid" paintings


Research and Cultural Collections presents recently gifted works by artist David Prentice (1936-2014). This exhibition features a series of large-scale triangular paintings referred to by the artist as "delta field grids" painted during the 1960s and 1970s. A founding member of Birmingham's internationally renowned IKON gallery, Prentice was commissioned by the University of Birmingham in 1970 to create Pleiades, a series of grids on mirrors. This marked the beginning of a close relationship between Prentice, his artist-wife Dinah and the University; culminating in the gift of paintings and the artist's archive, featured in the current exhibition alongside loans from the artist's family.
