Artist's description:

‘IN HER SILENT WALK’ is an acrylic and dye painting on unprimed canvas. It is 100x75cms in size, unframed and stretched over a wooden frame with steel corner braces. My practice entails protracted revision, during which paint is progressively overlaid. Ambiguity is a conspicuous feature of these works. The painting begins with a clear and exacting visual memory of location and event. In this instance time has no application it is timeless. The painting takes inspiration from a musical source, Mile Davis’ ‘In A Silent Way’ . It was Miles’ first statement of abstraction and his first ‘fusion’ work. In the painting any literal representation is overwritten by expressive mark making, which happens quickly to define the ‘moment’ or a series of sounds. Other pictorial elements are added en-route with the intention of creating psychologically charged spatial inventions.
