NH462 ‘Les Demoiselles d’Arles’ 22 x 32 inches    56 x 81 cm    Acrylic on Canvas    2015 
   An intricate pattern with strongly defined cast shadows provides the opportunity to  develop a composition of energetic balance and structure in an arrangement of interlocking  colours and shapes. The dynamic of the grille and the shadows behind contrast with each other  in a fixed shallow space. There are many different ways of approaching this painting and it has  several alternative titles, including: - ‘L’Arlesiennes’, ‘Pan’s People’, ‘The Male Gaze’, ‘The  Hookers’, ‘The Stepford Wives’ and ‘The Statue in the Park’; which give different options for  relating to the subject-matter.
