Natalie Dower’s second solo exhibition with the Eagle Gallery draws from a career of over 40 years, and presents recent paintings hung in counterpoint to selected historic works.
Dower’s approach to using systems of constructivism and geometric art has always been individual. A friend and contemporary of painters including Malcolm Hughes and Jean Spencer, her work is defined by its strong colour sense and an experimental use of materials including perspex, avonite and nylon.
The exhibition casts a retrospective eye back to the 1980’s with a selection of intricate reliefs that have not been exhibited since exhibitions at the Curwen Gallery, hung alongside a series of ‘hybrid’ images, and canvases from the past two years.
