Robyn Denny

Saturday, 23rd September 2017 until Saturday, 6th January 2018

A solo exhibition celebrating the work of the painter Robyn Denny presented across both our venues.
Robyn Denny (1930-2014) was one of an internationally acclaimed group who transformed British art in the 1950s, 60s and 70s, leading it into the international mainstream. His large-scale, resolutely urban abstract paintings captured the cool, modernising mood of the time yet have a sombre and enigmatic presence that makes them seem paradoxically timeless.

Robyn Denny

Saturday, 23rd September 2017 until Saturday, 6th January 2018

A solo exhibition celebrating the work of the painter Robyn Denny (1930-2014) is to be presented across both our venues this autumn.
Denny was one of an internationally acclaimed group who transformed British art in the 1950s, 60s and 70s, leading it into the international mainstream. His resolutely urban, large-scale abstract paintings captured the cool, modernising mood of the time. He graduated from RCA in 1957, and within a decade was enjoying considerable international success, alongside his contemporaries Howard Hodgkin, Bridget Riley, Peter Blake and David Hockney. In 1966 he represented Britain at the Venice Biennale with Anthony Caro, Bernard Cohen, Harold Cohen and Richard Smith and at the time of his 1973 Tate retrospective he was the youngest artist to be so honoured.
This exhibition is a celebration of the work of an artist key to British abstraction, who kept his eye firmly on America and his London contemporaries. This exhibition, concurrently presented at Newlyn Art Gallery and The Exchange in Penzance, offers an in-depth understanding of the evolution of his work over five decades and an exploration of the importance and contemporary relevance of his work. Importantly, the exhibition will draw attention to later works, dating from the early 1980s and beyond, which have rarely been presented publicly before.

Visions of the tropics by Gauguin will be shown alongside his predecessors, such as William Hodges and Edward Gennys Fanshawe who accompanied Captain Cook to the South Pacific, as well as Nashashibi/Skaer’s new film. Together these works will address the way art has represented the exoticised woman and colonised lands.
