Margaret Drabble talking about Maurice Cockrill


Maurice Cockrill (1936–2013)

“Cockrill always seemed to me very young in spirit, always looking, always searching, always seeing the world with new eyes. The idea of repeating a formula is something I’ve always been afraid of: I don’t like the idea that you can ever know what you’re doing. I’m looking for something I don’t quite know about. So, I think, was he.” ~ Margaret Drabble

Maurice Cockrill (not afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue!)


I stumbled upon this rather beautiful example of a work by Maurice Cockrill (Untitled Red Abstract, 2010, Oil on canvas, 32″ x 39″ in.), along with some very fine Sandra Blow paintings just here
