Leo Davy 1924 - 1987
From 20 October
To the end of his life, Leo Davy shunned art dealers and critics believing that painting spoke for itself. His late works provide a connection between his landscapes, inspired by the north Cornwall coast which he has made his home, and the tradition of abstraction to which he has been a contributor. An assessment of the significance of his work to British art as a whole has yet to be made but, "Leo Davy is vital to our understanding of the British abstract tradition," Barry Barker, Arnolfini Director.
