Paintings

The work in this exhibition is selected from Copnall’s later colourfield paintings, mostly in acrylic on cotton duck dating from the 1970’s. Having lived and painted in artistic isolation in Andalusia for over two decades, he had returned to London to be overwhelmed by the colour, energy and dimension of the work then showing in the London galleries.

The son of painter and sculptor Edward Bainbridge Copnall, he was educated at the Royal Academy Schools, and was latterly a member of the London Group.

A few of his father’s wood carvings, executed while he was living in Littlebourne, will be shown with the paintings.
