Charlie Sheard: Absolute Abstraction

Leading abstract artist Charlie Sheard summons his personal connection with European, Chinese and Australian cultural history through a language of pure abstract forms and colour, developed over 40 years. The artist will be in conversation at the gallery on 11 August with Michael Hedger on ideas and approach revealing ‘the spiritualism of his almost ritualistic technique and dedication… and a deep affiliation with Kandinsky’s assertion that “more sensitive souls” will be moved by the effects of colours.’
