Catalogue Note

"I discovered with surprise […] his fascinating drawings made with coloured pencils, absolutely extraordinary landscapes, people with distorted nudes, strange architectures and vegetation […] when I left the room I was another man." Gordon Onslow-Ford, Towards a New Subject in Painting, 1948
