' Paintings are not to be reasoned with, they are not to be understood, they are to be recognised.'
(JOHN HOYLAND )
This week a major exhibition on the origins of abstract art opened at the Tate Gallery. As the pros and cons of figurative versus abstract art are once again fiercely debated, Arena presents a revealing film about one man at the centre of this debate.
John Hoyland , reckoned by many to be this country's finest abstract painter, has been both loved and hated to excess. Tonight's film stays close to the artist through six long days as he struggles to complete a new painting. He explains why, in bleaker moments, it can feel ' like flicking away in a corner with a feather duster '.
