Artist's description:

This is the completed painting entitled 'The Sculpture Garden II.

It's developed from a small sketch made during a life drawing class.

It's part of a continuing series in which I'm exploring the use of abstracted flat coloured shapes to create the sense of form in space, in order to play with the contradictions of representing the 3D world on a 2D surface.

In this particular piece, I was especially focussed on trying to 'break' or 'buckle' the picture plane using the teachings of Josef Albers in his book 'Interaction of Color', as well as by ongoing fascination with Cubism, Picasso, Matisse and Hockney.

I kept thinking of Matisse's cutouts made during his later years, when he 'drew with colour' using nothing but a pair of scissors and coloured paper.
