TheEYE: Gillian Ayres, DVD

TheEYE: Gillian Ayres DVD


Part of an interview-based documentary series profiling major contemporary artists, this volume looks at the work of Gillian Ayres.

As a young artist in the 1950s, Ayres was closely involved with leading British abstract artists including Roger Hilton.

Ayres was quick to respond to European tachism and American abstract expressionism, creating a body of work that placed her in the forefront of her generation.

In the 1960s she was the only female artist to be represented in the important 'Situation' exhibitions, showing large paintings combining oil and paint that aimed for the sublime using very radial drip and pour techniques of action painting.
