Charles Nodrum, Works from the Estate 1930s-1960s, Charles Nodrum Gallery, exhibition catalogue, 2019:
“In the mid 1940s there’s a dramatic change of palette.  In the landscapes, day is followed by night, and from the dark nocturnes there soon emerged a purer abstraction that held sway through the 50s and into the 60s.  Here, circles, cruciforms (and, later, bird-forms) appear and the symbolic aspect comes more to the fore: the circle epitomising balance and perfection; the cruciform, the human body; and the dove, flight and freedom.  Composition board and enamel paints allowed for both a larger scale and for the more rigorous patterning for which he is probably best known.” (Nodrum, op. cit.)
