Metaphorically Speaking Part 2

John Percy is an abstract artist who works in painting and collage with a number of themes dealing with aspects of choice, decision and chance combined with elements of entropy and chaos.

This exhibition is part two of last year’s Metaphorically Speaking. Here he shows us a limited selection of favourite larger abstract paintings which scan back over a longer period.
