Sandra Blow - Early Works
Sandra Blow: Early Works exhibits a group of important, large-scale canvases across the first three decades of her artistic career, and is testament to her position as the earliest and most original of the female abstract painters in Britain.
Sandra Blow is widely considered to be one of the pioneers of British Abstraction since the inception of the movement. Her large, geometric canvases took heavy influence from the post-war ‘Art Informel’; a movement which saw renewed value in unorthodox materials, such as cement, clay, and linen to create canvases rich in texture and dimension. Her position at the forefront of the movement was significant, given the heavy male presence on the scene at the time.
