Beginning in the 1947, the figurative painter Victor Pasmore (1908-1998) veered towards pure abstraction, anticipating this dramatic shift in twentieth-century art. Though his earliest interrogations of abstraction were categorized by the utilization of linear forms and collage, in 1952, Pasmore, drawing upon constructivist ideologies, fashioned works as three-dimensional wall-reliefs in wood and Perspex. In the 1960s the geometry softened, introducing curved lines and edges, and bright colors blossoming in the 1970s and later into lyrical abstract compositions of points, wandering lines and planes of bright colors against his habitual white backgrounds and even some drawn outlines of natural forms again towards the end of his life. This exhibition will present Pasmore’s graphic works, which the artist began developing during the renaissance of printmaking in the 1960s up until his death in 1998. The prints are categorized as a synthetization of mathematics and geometrical forms, often juxtaposed with poetry written by Pasmore. The printmaking process served as a collaboration between Pasmore and the printer, with the artist drawing on the studio’s particular skills and developing images in conjunction with them.
