Birmingham-born Hurvin Anderson had an exhibition of his work at Thomas DaneGallery, 11 Duke St, London SW1Y 6BN, (Hurvin Anderson: New Paintings, 2 June - 9 July 2005). The exhibition came with this lavish colour catalogue, prefaced by a text by Edward Caughlin (Hurvin Anderson: Meeting Points). Within the text, Caughlin wrote, “In this exhibition, Hurvin Anderson presents landscapes and interiors from the West Indies and Britain. Born in Birmingham to Jamaican parents, his history is bound up with both regions. His work expresses an identity that, divided between two groups of islands, is yet somehow estranged from both; wherever he is, his mind is somewhere else.”

The one-page preface by Caughlin was pretty much the only text in the catalogue. The other pages contained extensive reproductions of Anderson’s work, a number of which were full-page images, the remaining being either two smaller images on a page, and five small images on the one remaining page. A total of sixteen of Anderson’s paintings were reproduced in the catalogue. 

An abbreviated CV appeared at the back of the catalogue.
