My short text on John Blackburn’s paintings in the collection of Kettle’s Yard has just been published on the Public Catalogue Foundation website. The text considers the nineteen paintings from the 1960s collected by Jim Ede for his own collection, and can be read on the following link:
The artist’s new exhibition is at Osborne Samuel, London, 4th-28th September 2013.
John Blackburn will be in conversation with Julia Hedgecoe at Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge on 11th November.
