Catalogue Note

"It’s not a person, it’s not a portrait; it’s a painting, and everything that goes on within it qualifies the other elements. It is all linked in with the stuff of how they are actually composed and how they come about: the colour that comes from underneath, the layer that builds up, the way the colours work together, the way a mark sits."
