The title for this exhibition, Don’t be afraid of Pink, derives from an experience as a student in the 1960s, when his painting tutor suggested he should work with the colour he most disliked. The idea was that Collingbourne should rid himself of any preconceptions and learn to appreciate the potential of every colour. The colour he disliked most was pink. On display will be a vibrant selection of paintings inspired by this concept.
