Francis Davison

Structure and Colour: Collages 1952-84
"When he began making collages in 1952, Davison never again felt the need to paint, because his collage was a form of brushless painting ... His collages remain some of the most painterly of any paper assemblages." Andrew Lambirth
Including several works selected for Davison's retrospectives at the Hayward Gallery (1983) and Kettle's Yard (2007/08).
This exhibition accompanies the launch of the updated edition of Francis Davison by Andrew Lambirth (Samson & Co, first edition published in 2014).
