About the artwork

Magenta Hatch Cover - The hatch cover theme has intrigued me for years now.

My first painting was a small oil sketch done at Te Kouma, on the Coromandel Peninsula, of a bright red hatch cover against the blue sea, and after that I began to see hatch covers as a motif to develop; using the hatch cover colour as the basic harmonic note in the arrangement of the other colours in the work.

I have begun to see this particular composition as a return from the Pure Abstract, as developed by Mondrian, back to Reality that is the initial inspiration.
