About this Event

This seminar focuses on an extraordinary pair of pictures painted by the prominent English artist Michael Andrews in the early 1960s, in which he juxtaposes a mass of visual elements taken from various photographic sources. Deer Park (1962) and All Night Long (1963-4) offer fascinating examples of what we might call painted collage. They also see Andrews testing out the possibilities of a new kind of painting of modern life, in which the forms of pictorial fragmentation and overlap associated with collage are brought to bear on the myths and imagery of contemporary journalism, literature and film.
