Basil Beattie: Ladder and Step Series - Art Collector

Basil Beattie, 2017. Courtesy: the artist and Two Rooms Gallery, Newton.

  Basil Beattie presents a series of oil stick paintings on handmade paper that echo his celebrated large-scale paintings on canvas. All executed within the last year, these new works come directly from his 2018 solo exhibition, A Passage of Time at the Royal Academy of Arts, London. Beattie's visual language employs pictograms and architectural components to explore the endless possibilities of abstract pictorial space, acting as vehicles for conveying numerous symbolic associations. Basil Beattie is one of Britain’s most respected painters with an illustrious career spanning over 60 years. His extensive teaching career at Goldsmiths’ College through the 1980s until 1998 has exerted a substantial influence on successive generations of artists.
