Peter Coker RA: The Solidity of Form
An Exhibition of highlighted works by Peter Coker held at the Piano Nobile in conjunction with the publication of the fith edition of The Nobile Folios.
The Fith edition of The Nobile Folios explores SUNFLOWERS 1958/9 by PETER COKER RA (1926-2004). This folio marks the third exhibition of the artist's work held by the gallery.
The painting is set alongside an introductory essay by Andrew Lambirth and 'Meditations' by Carrie Etter. The folio unearths Coker's powerful vision of still life painting and sets free the remarkable handling of paint in this unique work. Our perception of the era in which it was painted, the artist, and the painting are deepened by art critic Andrew Lambirth's introduction and poet Carrie Etter's meditations which include a 'Short History of Pigments'.
