• Patrick Procktor: A show of works on paper by Patrick Procktor opens on Thursday 2 February at The Redfern Gallery, London. The selected works trace the evolution of the artist’s technique and visual language over the course of five decades. The accompanying catalogue includes an essay written by myself. Shown here is a 1973 watercolour to be included in the show.
Update 28 January: The Procktor show has been postponed slightly, and will now open on 8th February.
• Fraser Taylor: The monograph Rose Wylie and Fraser Taylor “Collisions” is about to go to press. The book is to be published by Steidl in June, when there will be an accompanying exhibition of work by the two artists. I have recently received the pdf of the book, which has been curated by Alison Harley and designed with great verve by Theseus Chan. It includes my essay ‘Bodies of Work: notes on aspects of Fraser Taylor’s practice’. An update will follow later in the year.
