This exhibition brings together and juxtaposes the work of ten abstractionists – five painters and five sculptors – and includes the work of: Michael Buzacott, Virginia Coventry, Paul Hopmeier, Roy Jackson, Jan King, Allan Mitelman, John Peart, James Rogers, Paul Selwood and Aida Tomescu.  Each of these senior artists have rarely deviated from the language of abstraction that they acquired in their 20s, and over time they have refined, deepened and expanded their idioms to an exemplary degree. This exhibition emphasises the maturity, consistency, richness and exceptional quality of these artists’ work, which has by and large, rejected literary content in favour of process, form, colour, mark and resonance.
