Description Robert Holyhead’s precise application and removal of paint, his colourful abstract form and his complex composition are celebrated in this catalogue. Full page illustrations of each of the eight paintings from 2010 are accompanied by detailed photographs of the edge of the paintings and places where the paint has been wiped away. Holyhead 'looks for a type of familiarity, to create a presence that allows itself to be exposed on the surface.' In his interview with Anthony Spira, director of the Milton Keynes Gallery, Holyhead explains that he is 'pursuing this idea of navigating something spatially within the painting.' Throughout the conversation, the artist discusses his struggle to find a new way of painting, his process and how he became a painter.
