Wilhelmina Barns-Graham - Wilhelmina Barns-Graham: Rhythms of Colour: Late Paintings and Prints

Sat 8th Sep 2018 - Sun 27th Jan 2019

This exhibition, the third organised by The Watermill Gallery in collaboration with the Wilhelmina Barns-Graham Trust, will be an opportunity to view a significant collection of her late work.

Barns-Graham had an extraordinary creative flowering in her later years which became the most fruitful of all. The exhibition will feature a remarkable group of paintings from this period, which will include full-sheet works on paper. The rhythms of colour and the dynamic brushstrokes in these later paintings convey a vivacity and joie de vivre that is irresistible.

Towards the end of her life Barns-Graham came to regard print-making as equally important as her painting. She found print-making a liberating experience. The thirty prints presented in the exhibition are mostly from her time working with Graal press. They fully express her zest for life and her creative energy. These images are just a small selection of the forty paintings, prints and drawings in the exhibition. Please call the bookshop or email if you would like to order a copy of the full catalogue.

She is known primarily for her abstract painting and print-making, but she also produced a distinctive body of graphic work, several of which will be on show here.
