Through its exploration of lines and generating and defining of shapes such as the curve, circles, angles and arabesque, this painting picks up on the style and ideas of the Movement paintings of British St Ives School artist Sir Terry Frost, who explored concepts around creating rhythm, counterpoint, interruption and repetition.
A wonderful visual vocabulary of bright primary colours, shapes, and movement transforms what would normally just be a group of mugs and pitchers, and has given them a life of their own.
The magic in this is that the artist has taken ordinary objects, and has looked at them in a way that has removed all preconceived notions of visual experience in order to open up the possibility of recreating and reimagining that defies reality. There is an openness to serious play with colour and shape. This painting is simple and surprisingly subtle, but very satisfying to look at, and to enjoy.
This lovely oil on board is in excellent vintage condition. The complementary frame as seen in the photos is included with the painting.
