Soft Art from 1988

What treasures we are privileged to in tap into with charity shops and second hand bookshops. A serendipitous find of a catalogue from a Barbican exhibition in 1988 led me on a nice little research trip on the internet. A couple of the artists featured in the exhibition have left few traces of their work made in the intervening years. Several however seem to have continued a lively practice, quietly developing thoughtful and challenging work apparently unconcerned that their names have faded into obscurity and their art largely unsung.

…except perhaps for the  few who like myself have drawn heart from a glance back to their heyday in 1988!
