John Loker Artist Talk
6 February, 2:00 – 4:00pm
Listen to an audio recording of painter John Loker in conversation with Jessica Rutterford of Flowers Gallery, discussing his solo exhibition Space is a Dangerous Country.
Loker studied Graphic Design at Bradford College of Art and Design alongside fellow artists David Hockney, David Oxtoby, John Loker, Michael Vaughan and Norman Stevens, who became known collectively as the 'Bradford Five'.
Since his first solo show at the gallery in 1970, Loker has continued to develop a personal language of painterly abstraction through experimentation with new working processes. Loker’s evolving vocabulary was formulated to describe the infinite and ephemeral nature of experience, and the shifting balance of oppositional forces.
His work is in the collections of the Arts Council of Great Britain; British Council; Deutsche Bank AG, London; Tate Gallery; and Victoria and Albert Museum.
