Maurice Cockrill is an artist who has changed styles several times in his career and is famous for the breadth of his techniques. In the early 1980s he had a burst of improvisation which led to free flowing, expressionist paintings.
At the end of 1982 he began work on a series of nude figures. These paintings were built up gradually. Eventually the figure emerged to almost fill the canvas. The resulting works can be bleak and threatening but also rich and energetic.
