Published on the occasion of the inaugural exhibition at Newport Street Gallery, built to house work from Damien Hirst’s art collection, John Hoyland: Power Stations provides a fascinating insight into the life and work of one of Britain’s leading abstract painters. Renowned for his intuitive manipulation of color, form and texture, John Hoyland (1934-2011) saw nonfigurative imagery as offering “the potential for the most advanced depth of feeling and meaning.” Including work drawn from a pivotal period in Hoyland’s career–1964 to 1982–Power Stations shows an artist equally comfortable with geometric and gestural abstraction, combining elements of both in vividly hued, large-scale paintings. The first extensive survey of Hoyland’s work since the artist’s death, this volume reaffirms Hoyland’s status as a major innovative force within the pantheon of international abstraction.
