This is the first ever monograph on the work of the British artist John Blackburn.
The prevailing mood of John Blackburn’s work is investigative: he wants to know more about human nature and he continues to work with unquenchable optimism.
Blackburn’s work is about layers of experience, the interaction of memory and events. His lyrical abstract paintings of simple, strong forms in pure, unmixed colours signal Blackburn out as one of this country’s foremost contemporary artists.
