Gillian Ayres

Wednesday 11 May 2011 to Saturday 02 July 2011, 22:00

Gillian Ayres is considered one of the most important British painters working in the abstract style from the post-war period through to the present day, particularly noted for her wide variety of mark-making styles and use of rhythm and colour. Ayres exhibited at Arnolfini during its early days, and her painting Break-Off, 1961, painted the year Arnolfini was established, has been selected for this exhibition by Annabel Rees, co-founder of Arnolfini especially for our 50th anniversary programme. Break-off is presented alongside a new work that Ayres painted this year.
