English Abstract Expressionist painter Albert Irvin is known for his brightly coloured and highly textured paintings. Translating the American movement to the UK, Irvin's take is perceptibly playful: a form of abstraction filled with light, colour, and dynamic possibility. Layers of thick brushstrokes coalesce in 'Sangora', to create a sense of naive optimism. Swathes of pink provide a background, overlaid with patches of bright orange, moss green and deep blue. Irvin deliberately appropriates a childlike aesthetic, probing questions of the nature of art, while creating a truly compelling work of modernity.
