Catalogue Note

'Arrive at a colour - a colour so organised and controlled as to be able to envelop you if you are willing to generate the mind and spirit. We all feel various effects from coming up against nature or man-made objects but always there is some colour somewhere which tempts, titillates or repels us, or leads us in and on, to a form and content and perhaps to something unknown to us.' (Terry Frost, notebooks late 1960s-70s, quoted in Lewis and Knowles, ibid, p.179)
