Light of the World Suite (A-J), a set of ten screenprints, whose title harks back to the Pre-Raphaelite painting by Holman Hunt which hangs in St Paul's Cathedral.

These screenprints relate directly to several large oil paintings Denny exhibited in his retrospective exhibition at the Tate Gallery in 1973 in which interlocking, coloured forms float against a large expanse of monochrome pigment, implying a 'step' into imaginary space.
Robyn Denny PortraitRobyn Denny, who graduated in 1957 from the Royal College of Art, was one of a powerful generation of innovatory artists. He was to become one of the most original abstract painters of the later 20th century, evolving an intellectually demanding approach to painting that – perhaps paradoxically – resulted in pure visual delight bordering on the voluptuous.

Independent, constantly questioning and intensely urban, Denny immersed himself in contemporary city culture, making it the foundation of his work. His titles, such as Ted Bentley, Living In, Drink Me, though apparently plucked from the air, were culled from news reports, TV shows and esoteric reading.

Later, they sometimes suggested the process of making paintings: Looking and Thinking and the beguiling Secret Life of Art imply a reflective dialogue between artist and canvas. He also made numerous prints and, with the Colour Box series, experimented with translucent acrylic sheets as a medium for multiples.
