Patrick Procktor exhibition reviewed in the Mail on Sunday

February 12, 2017

The Redfern Gallery was pleased to read that the Mail on Sunday (11 February) reviewed the Patrick Procktor exhibition of works on paper. In a very positive review, Geordie Greig gave the show a 4-star rating. This is the first exhibition dedicated to Procktor's works on paper for over two decades, and features a felt-tip portrait of Mick Jagger, a watercolour of the actor Nicol Williamson, as well as landscapes inspired by his visits to India, Egypt and China during the 1970s and '80s. In his review, Greig opines that "the star of the show is a 1969 portrait of Gervase Griffiths, Moroccan Slipper, looking like T Rex’s Marc Bolan, sensuous and youthful". Works on paper by Procktor will also be included in the upcoming Queer British Art 1861-1967, a large-scale survey exhibition featuring Francis Bacon and David Hockney, among many others, running from 5 April to 1 October, at Tate Britain.
