Albert Irvin

Albert Irvin | Sangora. Irvin’s abstract paintings are characterised by their colour and by their seemingly spontaneous and exuberant marks. In this piece a vibrant palette has replaced Irvin’s earlier use of subtler shades. This shift in palette reveals the importance which Irvin began to give to the use of brilliant colour in obtaining the force of expression he required. Like many of Irvin’s works Sangora is named after a road in the area near his studio in London.

“My paintings are not in any sense depictions of anything: I like to think that rather than being pictures of the world they are pictures about it”.

Albert Irvin’s energetic paintings are among the most celebrated works of British Abstract Expressionism. Irvin was admitted to the Royal Academy of Arts in 1998; in 2013 he was named an Officer of the Order of the British Empire for his contributions to British art.
