Notes Three quarters of this canvas is given over to a light grey curtain of paint, 2/3 above the main area of interest and 1/3 below it. The area of interest lies in a lower central band across the canvas from which emerges a red E shaped form from out of blackness. There are accents of blue and gold ochre and white dispersed throughout the black paint with the red form and it sets a stage for a strange interplay of exacting form against gestural brushstroke. The whole painting is oddly, enigmatically dramatic and carefully staged.
