Some time ago I was fortunate to view a small exhibition of this artists work and I would recommend to anyone that should the opportunity arise one would not be disappointed. My new piece which can be viewed at the bottom of this feature is based on his work.
Roy Turner Durrant
Roy Turner Durrant was born in Lavenham, Suffolk. After the war he studied at the Camberwell School of art under John Minton. Known as a semi-abstract painter his early work is characterized by colored oil landscapes in which ordinary topographic features were invested with the potency of the independent symbol.
He was greatly influenced by the early work of Roger Hilton, Alan Reynolds and Keith Vaughan. In the 1950s he developed from figuration to abstraction.
