Full text not available from this repository.


This research output was initiated by Hugonin who wanted explore the relationship between his own work and that of his tutor on the MA Course at Chelsea School of Art, Ian Stephenson (1934 – 2000). The result was a curatorial project, organized in conjunction with De La Warr Pavilion and BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, in which Hugonin selected works by Stephenson from 1967-72, the point when his approach to painting was hugely influential to a generation of young artists at the beginning of their careers. These studio visits were arranged by BALTIC as part of their Education programme and a filmed interview with Hugonin by Gary Malkin (BALTIC curator) is available at archive.balticmill.com. A monograph has been published by De La Warr Pavillion: ‘And our eyses scan time,’ includes essays by the musician Paul Hillier (Dappled Things) and the art historian Chris Yetton (The Abstract Ideal and the Sensual World). In developing the themes for this exhibition, Hugonin examined the sense of regional identity that links him to Stephenson. Both are from the North East and both dedicated themselves to the advance of abstract painting in Britain. The researcher has developed ideas of place and commitment in a series of public seminars in his studio that explored the role of location in non-representational art practices. Hugonin is very interested in the optimum sense of association that artworks achieve at their site of production. This dilutes in galleries.
