Tryst (work in progress)
Natural development proceeds slowly. Some small sculptures of heads were made directly from drawings that related to the 'psalm' project, a project dating back to 2011. The idea presented there is occurring in this current painting, Tryst. Finding a workable abstraction for a head or face is an enduring problem as so much rests there in our recognition of emotion and mood, this 'idea' then is the late flowering of my continuing thought on the matter. Colour for this piece must follow in some form or other but as yet is undecided.
