Join us for a guided walkthrough of our latest exhibition featuring the paintings of Oliver Bancroft.
'I first visited Oliver Bancroft on the suggestion of a friend. He was still a student then, living in his mother's home, and I was (he tells me) the first person to pay him real money for his work. Over the years I have continued to buy, and I now have a house full.
In the last two decades Bancroft has become a feted filmmaker, with selections by Tacita Dean and in major international venues including the Pompidou. For me, he remains the best painter of his generation.
A diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis has limited Bancroft's exhibiting in recent years. This is his first painting show in over a decade – work as fresh, beguiling and poignant as when I first saw it.
It is with great pleasure that I commend his paintings to you.' Mike Goldmark, 2021.
‘Oliver Bancroft’s paintings help to unsettle us and, in so doing, to communicate with the realms elsewhere; he leads us in the dance.’ Hilary Davies, 2021.
