NH467 ‘Shadows 4 - Two Metal Tables’ 18 x 18 inches    45.5 x 45.5 cm    Acrylic on Canvas    2015 
   As with other paintings, the shadows on the ground are more important than the tables  casting them. The tables are cropped so that they are only partially evident and become a  pattern of curved and straight lines. These contrast substantially with the elliptical cast shadows  which just touch each other and form a figure of eight. The interplay between these different  sets of elements results in an asymmetrically balanced composition.
