Rooted in minimalist and conceptual painting, Alan Uglow’s works are investigations of space, architecture, and sculpture.
Fields of colour – preferably several clashing fields – are muted, almost merging with their surroundings. Uglow’s works are frames for spatial reflections and associations – blank pages we can engage with in a physical dialogue. Maybe this is why Uglow often installed his paintings as sculptural objects on the floor.
Alan Uglow (1941–2011) worked with BORCH Gallery & Editions in the 1990s.
