Alan Davie at 90. The Park Gallery Callendar House, Callendar Park, Falkirk. Kip is to give a talk on his work with him over the years. It takes place at 10.15 a.m. on Wednesday 8th September in the gallery.
In a career stretching back over 70 years Alan has made an extraordinary body of work filled with colour and energy. He has always been a pioneer of improvisation, in his music, his painting but especially in his printmaking. From his very first print called, emphatically, ‘YES’, through the ground-breaking 'Zurich Improvisations’ and into the more recent big burst of screenprints the thread is the same….'the design is something we should arrive at in the end’….there’s no reproduction, just spectacular invention. Visit the show if you can.
