Artist's description:

“LARKSPUR” is an acrylic and dye painting on unprimed canvas. It is 102x77cms in size unframed and stretched over a wooden frame with steel corner braces. It is part of a series of works which focus on ‘garden’ environments. The following poem is by Emily Dickinson called ‘Come Slowly Eden’

"Come slowly—Eden , Lips unused to Thee— ,
Bashful—sip thy Jessamines , As the fainting Bee—
Reaching late his flower, Round her chamber hums—
Counts his nectars— , Enters—and is lost in Balms."

These paintings are perhaps characterised by an even greater economy of means. Memories and current observations are precise but there is no diagram or under drawing. They are just painterly gestures which function in an almost entirely metaphorical way working from memory and association rather than replication or resemblance.
In this painting the garden environment, overlooked by the studio, and the life that occupies the space is the source. July is a very good month for flowers, for brilliant light and deep shadows.
