Black – 2013 / 2014


“Black is an abstraction; there is no black, only black things. But they are black in different ways, for there is a question of brilliance, whether they are matte or shiny, polished, rough, fine, etc., which is very important”   Jean Dubuffet  The Common Man at Work 1973      

These paintings form part of a body of research focusing on ‘black’, exploring black through motifs of birds, their iridescent colours and the use of black pigments.
