About

Seven from the Seventies brings together the work of seven influential abstract painters from the decade, featuring Colin Cina, Bernard Cohen, Noel Forster, Derek Hirst, Michael Kidner, Jack Smith and Richard Smith.


Each demonstrates a reductive and disciplined articulation of the sensations of light, form, sound, colour and space. Their ordered, procedural and systematic approach to painting opened up new possibilities for future formal experimentation within abstraction.


During this period, the artistic careers of all seven artists were in the spotlight, exhibiting in important solo and group presentations internationally and at major British institutions including Tate Gallery, the Institute of Contemporary Arts, Hayward Gallery, the Serpentine Gallery and the Royal Academy of Arts, London. With prominent roles in British art schools as well as international professorships, their ideas impacted upon a generation of artists.
