CICADAS, 1992

Working with the colours of paint pigments in ways that begin to communicate an experience of active visual connection, sets up a challenge for a non-figurative painter. 

 

With attentiveness and without anticipation, sometimes an unforeseen spatial order will appear in the colour array. This is what happened, when the space between colour shapes became linked as an optional foreground.
