Untitled (Kings Blue Light, Cadmium Yellow, Naples Yellow Red, Cadmium Red) is at first glance a soothing image of colours blended into a sea of calm, but upon closer inspection, presents an opportunity to explore deeper the concepts of the elusive and the intangible.
By creating a work that lacks a central focus without a balanced composition, the artist encourages the viewer’s eyes to move across the canvas constantly, allowing them to explore the colours presented in front of them. The inability to focus thus prompts the viewers to contemplate the intangible in-between state of seeing and experiencing, letting them linger longer in their introspection of the work.
