Bryan Wynter escaped from the tropes of figurative painting by undertaking controlled experiments with hallucinogenic drugs in the 1950s, as well as undertaking underwater diving and filming in the 1960s. Instead of running his father’s laundry business he ran off to Cornwall and settled in a remote cottage where he read Freud and Jung’s theories on the psychology of the unconscious. One of his earlier works, Still Life was painted at a time when Wynter was not yet engaging with abstraction.
