North Carolina Museum of Art, September 1964

Sandra Blow (1925-2006) was born in London and studied at the St Martins School of Art under Ruskin Spear from 1942 – 1946 and at the Academy in Rome from 1947-1948. In 1961 she won second prize for painting at the John Moore’s Liverpool exhibition and in the same year began teaching at the Royal College of Art. She has worked in a number of abstract styles, including gestural abstraction and Colour Field Painting, and she has experimented with adding various substances and or objects to the canvas. Sandra Blow considers herself an ‘academic abstract painter’, primarily concerned with such problems as balance and proportion – ‘issues that have been important since art began’
