Comments on: Douglas Allsop interview with Nickolas Lambrianou Abstract Critical is a not-for profit company aiming to establish a new critical context for all generations of artists involved with ambitious abstract art.

Perhaps its not arbitrary to connect an intensity or wonder of childhood perceptions to the sense of a conceptual framework as a mature artist and obviously Picasso springs immediately to mind, but its surprising nobody else has posted any comments or discussion here about Douglas’ work!

Certainly it is difficult or sophisticated artwork and maybe a would-be audience have mis-perceived it as an intimidating body-of-work or negative-mindset, whereas actually there there is so much more here than a framework-of-emptiness, but rather richly metaphysical focus achieving a masterly simplicity!

Good to look and read what Douglas is up to since I knew him as Director of Studies at Byam Shaw when I was a painting student in the mid-Nineties, so this is an inspiring and surprising article I have enjoyed!
