Alan Green, oil on canvas, 1982

The ‘Block and Column Paintings’ from this British artist seem like an archive of schematic layers of paint built up from a geometric order. Experimenting within the possibilities of abstract painting, Alan Green explored the function of colour and the potential of paint almost like a scientist. Searching for a free method, he always assigned a primary role to the structure of his paint and began to work on his surface in a plastic way. The environment and influence of light is also essential in his work.

‘Four Panels, Two Blues’ consists of structured pre-planned grid patterns, limited in colour. Each autonomous part is like a documented report. Simplicity is the ultimate reality, which is why Green refused an excess in his painting experiment.
