Lot Essay

'In all the paintings of this period in the late 1970s, the forms, colours and textures concentrate into rich patterns of overlap and interplay, piling up and pressing against each other, now tense, now relaxed, in a curbed turbulence that affects the eye like a complex visual music, now a rich chord, now a dissonance, now harmonic, now discordant' (See M. Gooding, John Hoyland, London, 1990, p. 18).
