Martin Froy: Paintings, constructions, drawings 1968–82

Serpentine Gallery 15 Jan — 13 Feb 1983 Free

An exhibition of Martin Froy’s paintings, including new works created between 1969 and 1983.

This was the first chance to see Froy’s paintings in London since 1969. The exhibition included new works from the intervening 14 years.

Froy (b.1926) is described in the accompanying publication by Judy Marle as “a man who is by nature highly methodical, highly intellectual, quick to pounce on his own evasions or mistakes”, and as having a “deep attachment to, and feeling for, the whole magic, and muck of painting”. His paintings “are at least as much about his response to experiences of homes, of local landscapes, of travel and foreign views, of washing lines and pond in the back garden, as about picture making”.
