About the Work

A narrative of hard edged orthogonal shapes in sapphire blue, bright yellow and crimson unfolds across a background grid of washed charcoal black rectangles. The black ground is made more powerful by the size of the six foot tall canvas and yet is tamed by whispers of canvas, like light, that define the grid. The title of the work, focused on this colour brings to mind the well known, enigmatic black canvases of Ad Reinhardt.
