NH475 ‘The Red Table’ or ‘Seven Café Table Tops’ 24 x 42 inches    61 x 107 cm    Acrylic on Canvas    2016 
          At first this painting of seven café table tops appears as a controlled and balanced  arrangement of circular overlapping abstract forms. Observed a little more closely, the circles  become table tops that appear to float above a paved floor. The density of the flat colours  arranged in a carefully considered distribution contrast vividly with the complex more muted  background which punctures the space and creates a sense of depth.
