Mundy, Henry
Henry Mundy's abstract paintings seem to allude to visual experiences; there are suggestions of both still-life and landscape, but his concerns are primarily abstract ones. The critic David Sylvester has written: 'What they are is still more uncertain than where they are and is of no consequence. It is certain only that the paintings relate to visual experience, to seeing in a space which is all around one, to seeing as one moves about in space.' Mundy himself has commented that in his arrangements of forms, lines and colours he wants 'to get the right intervals between the shapes in a way that satisfies me.' Ann Jones
