About Sandra Blow
One of the most important British pioneers of abstract painting, particularly gestural expressive abstraction, Sandra Blow is concerned with the problems of 'pure' painting - balance, colour, shape and scale. She explains: "As well as wanting a balance in the composition, there should be what I call a starting rightness. This can be any shape or colour: the crucial thing is that, although perfect in its place, there is an unexpected quality about it, an element of surprise."
Sandra Blow won the Wollaston Award for the most distinguished work at the 1992 Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
