Painting the Night

Black and white.  The colours of the night.  Artists have long portrayed the night in music, in poetry, in film, in painting.  The night hides mysteries that cannot be fully told, that cannot be fully understood.  I’ve had a special relationship with my paintings where colour creates the illusion of black and grey and white.  This new work, Black and White No. 20 removes all colour, becomes more opaque, impenetrable.  Like the night.  Like a cold night.
