“repeated forms reveal their differences on closer inspection, reinforcing the paintings as hallucinatory visions”
We’re delighted to offer The Mayor Gallery publications, available to purchase online for the first time through GalleriesNow.
Anthony Donaldson’s representations of women are undoubtedly voluptuous and sexually alluring, but their fresh and simplified stencilled silhouettes in sweet colours exude a certain innocence that distances them from any overt lasciviousness. The frequent repetition of their forms, often in pairs, gives them the simplicity and steady beat of early rock’n’roll and of the plaintive and melodious pop music of the early 1960s.
