Clarks piece about Englands relationship to Modernism,which I beleive was limited and disappointing.The exception was David Bomberg who to me speaks with an authentically modern voice.Obviously he must have made himself really unpopular with the establishment to be so ignored.Two of my teachers,John Epstein and Dennis Creffield, who attended the Borough group, were inspirational and I beleive modelled themselves on his passion.I met John Walker in Cork street and he took me on a tour of the galleries,pointing out a Nicholson,which he said he would love to own.I find them very dry but Mondrian in the Sidney Janis collection absolutely riveting.

I’m wondering what you would think about Clark’s position on this particular matter.

I saw the exhibition, but I will need to go back now and look and think a bit more thoroughly!

This has given me some further thinking:

“In its openness to sensuous experience and the light of the natural world, in its sublimated cursiveness (in these particular pictures), in its “carving” of space (see Christopher Green’s essay in the catalogue), in its improvisory fusion of the physicality of making with the optics of planar construction, certainly.”

Thanks abstractcritical.com for some more brainfodder.
The heart and brain are intertwined, and I felt this clearly, following the journey Alan took me on in this article. Thank you for writing it.
