Frank Bowling RA, OBE
Exhibition: ‘Intimate Abstraction’ 7th March-5th April 2013
Frank lives and works between London and New York. Originally from Guyana, he moved to London in 1953 and studied at the RCA, London, 1959-62. He was made an RA in 2005 and received his OBE in 2008. Working in acrylic since the late sixties, he incorporates found objects or material by embedding them in the stuff of the painting rather than sticking them onto the surface. He also stitches or staples pre-painted strips or rectangles of canvas onto the support, in the body of the painting or to frame it.
