Bio

Alan Reynolds work can be seen to define British abstraction after a move away from the more traditional landscape paintings that he so frequently practiced whilst in education.

His minimalist Quartet Canonic Trio conjures up notions of Ben Nicholson’s white reliefs, playing on ideas of space and shadows which are emanated from the raw colour palette of pure black and white.

Reynolds has been regarded as “the golden boy of the post Neo-Romanticism in England”, by well-renowned curator Bryan Robertson.

In 2011, at a retrospective, Reynolds said of his work, “There always remains a sense of balance […] The sense of joy on the one hand and of tragedy on the other. And a man stands in between.”
