A diptych, each canvas 16"x 20", 3"deep. The composition is built of clusters of lines, straight and curved, in black, warm yellow, brown, red and gold metallic oil paint on a white ground. The title refers to the autumnal colours but, more than that, to the sense of swirling movement, depth and change that has emerged from the initial marks. The precise moment when this painting was finished remained open-ended and even now is disputed by its viewers: would another mark on the canvas fix and stultify, or further vitalise the movement? The dual canvases can be rotated and transposed before its format is fixed, too. The painting of this picture has left me with "more questions than answers" and I'm taking those dilemmas on to create my next problem. I've been inspired by the early paintings and drawings of Mondrian in this painting.
