Artwork note:

This is a painting that depends on certainty of line. Here, the linear elements sweep and dance, stretch and twist their way across the canvas to generate an explosive inner tension that seems both to threaten and secure its unity at one and the same time. Bodies, as they reveal themselves, only ever appear as fragments. They seem to emerge out of a garden only to disappear back into it again.
