David Prentice Malvern Hills, 2004, oil, 58x58in (147.5x147.5cm)

David Prentice retrospective

The John Davies Gallery in Moreton-on-Marsh is staging a two-part retrospective of the work of David Prentice, each with approximately 100 pieces, to include a wide range of well-preserved grid paintings, abstract works on paper, Kite series exhibits and his Malvern Hills and City of London paintings.

David’s earliest prize-winning paintings from the late 1950s are traditionally composed representational works. In the 1960s he was one of the founders of the Ikon Gallery in Birmingham and was creating hard-edged abstract canvases, close to Op art. Inspired by Mondrian, early works were bought by the Arts Council and shown at the Serpentine. He was also taken up by Betty Parsons in New York and bought by the Albright-Knox Gallery in Buffalo. He joined the John Davies Gallery in 1996 and they represented him until his death in 2014, during which time he also contributed many articles to The Artist magazine.
