Inside the square- 2017 - huile et acrylique sur toile, 9 pièces 80x80 (©photo Peter De Lorenzo)

The title of this series of nine is “Inside the Square” and marks a departure point from earlier work in which the rhythms of shapes and colours grow out of a grid drawn and painted onto a single surface.
Dissonance and harmony influenced by the work of Schoenberg and Messiaen remain important elements, but it is the figure ground relationship, the exploration of space that becomes the point of focus here. The work now has physical as well as perceptual depth.

Colours jump intervals between the squares and into the viewer’s space. It is the viewer who synthesises and holds them together.
