Alan d'Archangelo at Michell-Innes & Nash

Mitchell-Innes & Nash has a very nice exhibition of seldom seen works by the POP artist Alan d'Archangelo (1930-1998) The exhibition runs from April 2 – May 2, 2009.

This is an exhibition which helps to expand the narrow confines imposed by ideas of a "signature style" It was clear from the works exhibited that there is more to d'Archangelo's work than a centerline. An important exhibition which should not be missed.

Mitchell-Innes & Nash has a good set of images from the exhibition on their website.
