Paul Anthony Harford at Sadie Coles

Having never exhibited during his lifetime, Paul Anthony Harford (1943-2016) is absent from histories of modern British art even though his roots at Byam Shaw School of Art, at a seminal moment in the development of post-war figuration, point to affinities with wider artistic trends. During his life, he produced hundreds of drawings, all in pencil and graphite stick, which he kept stacked around the walls of his attic studio. Characterised by a minutely-detailed style and subtle tonal range, Harford’s drawings frequently evoke scenes from everyday life or symbolist fantasies: life captured in his works fluctuate between routine and lurch towards the absurd or the sinister.
