Literature & references: Charles Nodrum, Introduction to the above exhibition, 2011: "From 1968 till 1972, Geoffrey de Groen lived and worked in Europe and Canada. The paintings in this exhibition were all painted after his return to Sydney – dates ranging from September 1973 to November 1974 and most were exhibited at Bonython Galleries in Sydney and Reid Gallery in Brisbane (he cannot be precisely sure which). Very few sold but very few remain: many were cut up and re-cycled into his next series – heavily textured stripe paintings shown at this gallery in 1994) and others, those he felt less than satisfactory, were discarded over the years in various studio moves. So this group represents the cream of what still exists. They consciously move away from the graphic geometry he had practised before he left and constitute an intense exploration of minimal colour and texture. Some are in acrylic – the flat and/or speckled works – and others, those with the crustier surfaces, are in oil over the acrylic. These have, in the intervening years, subtly changed in their appearance: the paint has matured and gathered a resonance over time."
