"We live in a secular, mass culture surrounded by cliché-ridden so-called advanced art that has become decadent and entirely commercial. Making art for art’s sake is the only way that honesty can be achieved. Finding the images that lie behind emotions produced by the mind, hand, eye, memory and heart." ~ John Hoyland

John Hoyland RA was a London-based British artist. He was one of the country's leading abstract painters.
