Exploring the diversity of the abstract genre through the work of artists such as Ivon Hitchens and Patrick Heron.

The exhibition examines the strategies artists have used to develop a form of art that does not rely on storytelling, but instead seeks to create a response through form, pattern, line and colour.

Professor Neil Grant of the University of Chester, who has selected the works for display explains, 'Abstract art aspires to be a pure form of visual expression, concerned solely with the creation of an image from materials and creative processes'.

The show includes pieces by Eduardo Paolozzi, Cornelia Parker and Ian Davenport among others, with Grant also drawing heavily on the many interesting abstract works in the Grosvenor's own collection.
