I’m looking forward to this exhibition of works from the Tate Collection which opens on Saturday.
Tate Collection Display at Tate Liverpool
26 August 2006 – 4 February 2007
This display brings together paintings and prints from the Tate Collection to celebrate the work of Patrick Caulfield, who emerged during the 1960s and died in 2005.
Traditional genres such as landscape, still-life and the domestic interior are radically re-imagined to produce images of startling originality. Finding his subject matter in the everyday world, his work exudes a highly personal style where detail is reduced to bold areas of vivid colour and form to solid black outlines, evoking a vivid sense of place both melancholic and mysterious.
