NH490 ‘Shadows 20 - Light Yellow Metal Table’ 22 x 22 inches   56 x 56 cm   Acrylic on Canvas    2017 
           This painting is constructed so that the curved shapes of the object flow  into the distorted cast shadow, leading the eye round the space and holding attention within the square. Very  important is the contrast between the flat painted surfaces and the textured surfaces, where  the colours flow subtly in to each other. At the same time as creating dynamic abstract shapes  this has been painted so that it reads convincingly as object and ground.
