A brushed square of burnt orange rimmed in berry red moves out from the centre of this four foot square acrylic canvas saturated with layers of billowing light brown and mauve. The foot of the canvas is defined by a slim strip of maroon below a swath of sky blue onto which is imposed a short calligraphic script in hot red. This glyphic script suggests a more deliberate communication that the artist refers to as visual poetry:
"The notation of language has always held more fascination for me than the verbal or auditory expression of it. Reading and absorbing the images of many manuscripts, sheets of music or pages of scripted writing throughout my life, has always led me to that curious space between perception and interpretation."
