NH393 ‘Grille 12 - Red, with Grey Blinds’ 18 x 18 inches    45.5 x 45.5 cm    Acrylic on Canvas    2003
   An intricate pattern with strongly defined cast shadows provides the opportunity to  develop a composition of energetic balance and structure in an arrangement of  interlocking colours and shapes. The dynamic of the Red Grille and the static horizontals  (and lesser verticals) of the Grey Blinds contrast with each other in a fixed shallow pictorial  space determined by the shadows of the grille. A thin blue almost vertical line creates an  extra secondary interplay of visual elements.
