Published on the occasion of Newport Street Gallery's inaugural exhibition – ‘Power Stations’ – this book provides a fascinating insight into the work of one of Britain’s leading abstract painters, John Hoyland. Renowned for his extraordinary and intuitive manipulation of colour, form and texture, Hoyland saw non-figurative imagery as offering, "the potential for the most advanced depth of feeling and meaning”. Spanning work drawn from a pivotal period in Hoyland’s career – 1964 to 1982 – the catalogue includes a comprehensive list of exhibited paintings, illustrated in full, as well as a foreword by Tate director, Nicholas Serota, written to coincide with Newport Street’s opening. Also featuring a text by art historian and critic, Barry Schwabsky, a re-published essay by the late writer Gordon Burn and a 2009 conversation between Hoyland and Damien Hirst, ‘Power Stations' both reaffirms Hoyland's status as a major innovative force within the field of international abstraction and provides new insights into his diverse and ever-evolving work.
