NH494 ‘Do Not Deny Me Your Love’ 26 x 34 inches   66 x 86.5 cm   Acrylic on Canvas    2018
           The structure of this painting relies on a complex interplay of predominantly  curved shapes which allow for a flowing passage for the eye through a complex of  counterbalancing directional forces. Unlike in many of my paintings, there is very little in the way of cast or attached shadows, with the result that pattern much more than  pictorial space characterises the painting. The painting's subject matter gives rise to  questions about the nature and possibilities of depiction and about the number and  variety of stages of visual processing involved.
