John Crossley VPRWS


ELECTED ARWS 2015 & RWS 2017


True to the roots of the artist, he originally studied sculpture in the 70’s at St. Martins School of Art under Anthony Caro, Phillip King and William Tucker, Crossley’s works marry colour with form and space. Unlike many of his contemporaries he is attracted to the resonance of colour as a language of emotional experience. Crossley’s paintings are bright clear notes ringing out amid the cacophony of contemporary art, characterised by their exuberant, gleaming colours, his paintings transcend our assumptions about ‘Englishness’ and beguile us instead with an exotic vibrancy.
