For John Hubbard's latest exhibition in the Gallery at Roche Court, we have selected a group of paintings the artist made following a number of trips to Morocco beginning in 1969. Having settled in Britain in the 1960s, the American-born Hubbard had already established a reputation for work which combined the influence of abstract expressionism with the traditions of English landscape painting. Looking for a fresh perspective and the antithesis of the Dorset and Cornish countryside he had previously portrayed, Hubbard spent a year drawing - but not painting - the kind of landscape he imagined he would find in Morocco. As exercises in colour, these drawings expanded Hubbard's range but also proved prescient of what he actually discovered once he was able to trek and draw around Toubkal in the Atlas Mountains.
