LONDON.- It is with great sadness that Annely Juda Fine Art has to announce that Alan Reynolds has died at the age of 88. Alan has been with the gallery since 1978 and it has been a real honour and pleasure to work with him, both as a wonderful artist and friend.

Alan was an artist whose career falls into two halves: the landscape and abstract painter of the 1950s and 1960s, and the constructive artist of the last 45 years. The quest for equilibrium has been at the centre of Alan's art since he emerged from the Royal College of Art in 1953. Alan's work from that time, which earned him early recognition and success, was influenced by the landscape of his native Suffolk and the hop gardens and orchards of his adoptive Kent.

From 1968 onwards depiction was firmly set aside in favour of the 'concrete' image. For more than 45 years, Alan has been working entirely as a concrete artist, making tonal modular drawings and constructed white reliefs. He had growing success, which led to international exhibitions including a retrospective at the Städtische Galerie im Schloss, Wolfsburg and the Wilhelm-Hack-Museum, Ludwigshafen in 1996. Apart from his home country, he was particularly admired in France and Germany.

Michael Harrison (Director at Kettle's Yard and long-standing friend of Alan's who died in 2013) followed Alan's career for many years and in 2011 wrote an extensive monograph on his work.

Vona, Alan's wife, has been by his side for nearly 60 years and his career would not have been possible without her constant support.

Alan will be greatly missed by us all at the gallery and we hope to organise a memorial celebration at Annely Juda Fine Art at a later date to be arranged shortly.
