Taken from the 'Estates' series, the abstract painting contrasts a powerful surface allure with the derelict, the degraded and the decay of their subject matter. It explores complex political-economic ideas and traces the failure of modernism as a route from anachronistic social structures towards cultural and aesthetic freedom. The English artist Keith Coventry is best known for his paintings of council estates, paintings that are an indictment of the utopian visions of the early twentieth-century artist Malevich. His work plays with the exhausted ideals of Modernism, the decline of its values and Utopian hopes.
