Gillian Ayres & Howard Hodgkin

View all work included in the exhibition

Best known for their colourful, abstract painting, both Gillian Ayres (1930 – 2018) and Howard Hodgkin (1932 – 2017) were also accomplished printmakers.  This exhibition includes a range of hand-painted editions which focus on the medium of carborundum – an intaglio print technique they both learned at Jack Shirreff’s 107 Workshop in Wiltshire and continued to use with Andrew Smith at Andrew’s Printworks in Dorset. The larger-scale prints by Gillian Ayres date from between 1993 and 2014,whereas the selection of small-scale editions by Hodgkin focus on his later prints from 2014 – 2016 which include a group from the After All series, the last prints he made before he died.  This small survey offers a glimpse into the artists’ extensive printmaking careers.

Gillain Ayres & Howard Hodgkin will run on the upper floor of Tremenheere Gallery, while Sculptors’ Prints: Richard Long, David Nash and Richard Woods will run concurrently on the lower floor. Both exhibitions are organised in conjunction with Cristea Roberts Gallery. All works will be available to purchase and the full exhibition will be viewable online once the exhibition begins.

Tremenheere Gallery is open Tuesday – Saturday, 11am – 4pm. Closed Sundays and Mondays. FREE entry – no need to pre-book visits.
