NH491 ‘Stacked Plastic Chairs 3’ 22 x 32 inches   56 x 81 cm   Acrylic on Canvas    2017  £ 2,800
           Like partly opened fans, two sets of carelessly stacked plastic chairs arc across the  painting in opposite directions. Containing areas of strong colour and areas of tonal subtleties  found in white objects bathed in light, the space is opened out and articulated by the seat on  the right hand side with the rippling streaks of light on its surface. The eye is taken from left to  right and then drawn back again by the opposing smaller chair backs. Each one in the main  group of chairs casts a shadow on to the next, creating a secondary set of related  colour/shapes and a more dynamic pictorial balance results because the chairs are stacked  slightly clumsily.
