Lot Essay

'These paintings are not abstract nor are they landscape, they use abstraction as a method and landscape as a source. They reject the conventions of landscape but remain recognisably in the country. They are concerned with environment rather than view and with air rather than sky. The country is used to make something just as clay is used to make a pot. The observer is encouraged to move and to become a part of the painting just as a dancer becomes part of music'

(Peter Lanyon, circa 1958, cited in A. Lanyon, Peter Lanyon 1918-1964, Penzance, 1990, p. 172)
