Mark Sheerin reviews ‘I Cheer a Dead Man’s Sweetheart’ at the De La Warr Pavilion for www.artsdesk.com:

Blue / Yellow Streak

Blue / Yellow Streak, Oil and Oil-Stick on Canvas 170 x 152 cm

‘Gary Wragg could stop you in your tracks with one of his large-scale canvases in which no colour or mix of colours is considered excessive. In Blue/Yellow Streak he substitutes the lapis lazuli and the gold leaf of early Renaissance painting with a searing lemon yellow and an overwhelming field of pure blue.  Thick paint offers sensual pleasures, while square brush strokes make the whole solid and satisfying. It is as balanced as the modernist building which houses this show.’
