His paintings’ unique strength. Abstract but graspable. Nobody has achieved this feat so well in art history – until now. IMO. Seriously.
Without really believing it was his intention, I playfully suggested on Facebook today that the above painting was a depiction of the race course scene from ‘My Fair Lady’. Big hats, race course buildings, horses. Then maybe Royal Ascot? Until I suddenly realised that Ade is a Cheltenham artist. So perhaps the Cheltenham Gold Cup? Not that I am remotely interested in horse racing! And not that the painting was remotely about this subject matter! (Or was it?)
Just for the record. Another painter I admire: David Welham.
