Jack Crampton

(b.1948 Middlesex) studied at Chelsea School of Art BA and MA Fine Art.  Moved to East Anglia in 1974. Twice awarded grants by Eastern Arts and exhibited in the capital and regionally across a variety of venues.

In Jack Crampton's paintings, loosely applied systems and constraints over gestural processes edge components into
a ruffled formality.  Since 2006 picture plane and boundary

are increasingly probed for resilience.  Often 'paths' are driven across the surface; a nod to Barnett Newman's
'zips' perhaps, but also like other linear devices used in earlier paintings, a reference and hommage to the spirit of 'Land Art'.
