Rocket/Jonathan Stephenson presents paintings and screenprints by the Danish-born Londoner Peter Hedegaard (1929-2008). This is the first solo exhibition of Hedegaard’s work for thirty-five years.

Rocket’s exhibition includes a cross-section of Hedegaard’s paintings from the early 1970s. In 1974 Hedegaard was a prize winner in the John Moore’s Painting Prize and Rocket will be showing ‘Green and yellow’, his exhibited painting.

Screenprints were made by Hedegaard from 1966. His wife Isolde taught herself the process and together they collaborated on two or three screenprints each year. A few prints from each edition were stored safely in the studio plan chest and now after more than three decades will feature at Rocket, together with related gouaches.
