There is to be a new exhibition of the artist Gillain Ayres at Arnolfini, Bristol. She was considered one of the most important British painters working in abstraction in the post-war period. Particularly noted for her wide variety of mark-making styles and use of rhythm and colour. Ayres exhibited at Arnolfini during its early days, and her painting 'Break-Off', 1961, painted the year Arnolfini was established, has been selected for this exhibition by Annabel Rees, co-founder of Arnolfini especially for our 50th anniversary programme. Break-off is presented alongside a new work that Ayres painted this year.
