Introductory Essay

Every time we welcome John Crossley back to the gallery is a cause for celebration and it is doubly so on this occasion as John marks a significant birthday this summer. At 70 years young Ebb and Flow sees John as creatively vigorous as ever. Settled and now attuned to his new home on the Suffolk coast, John has produced over 30 new acrylics on paper and three sumptuous new silkscreen editions. He has found a way of breaking significant new ground while reminding us of the joyous, cerebral, meditative qualities that we have grown to love in his work. It is his most ambitious, and to my mind, best show to date.


All John’s best work takes the form of a conversation with the viewer and there is wonderful, garrulous company to be found in the gallery here. With typical generosity, John gives us much to explore and much to enjoy. So, welcome back John. Many happy returns indeed.
