Main Gallery Exhibition / Lynnford Jones
Exhibition Date: 5th – 26th June 2021
'His canvasses are swept with energy...his experimentation with shape and colour has led him to a wonderfully creative world.' - Review in art and literary magazine 'Innovate'.
The paintings in his new 2021 solo exhibition, represent a fraction of the astonishing output of Lynnford Jones. Whose works are included in the prestigious Gibbs collection at Oxford University and in private collections worldwide.
Lynnford is one of Wales’s finest Abstract Expressionist artists. At 80, his level of creativity has rarely been higher, challenging and inspiring young artists with the breadth of work that springs from his pioneering studio. And through the swirls of shape, colour and texture that inform his canvasses there emerge wonderfully human anecdotes.
Lynnford’s journey from figurative art to pure abstract expressionism is captured in this exhibition. Besides traditional oils and acrylics, he is not averse to using car spray, nail varnish and coloured sands
Born in Crynant in 1940, Lynnford was a miner, then served in the forces before reading Engineering at University subsequently teaching applied maths and civil engineering.
He now lives near Pontardawe, in the Swansea Valley.
