These paintings continue the pursuit of a pictorial space that remains both volatile and seductive; one that entices and overwhelms; one that we become totally immersed in, and we surrender to that capture! The later works in the Stellar series have moved beyond the purely linear in construction, with the introduction of more complex multidirectional ‘in-fills’. They still owe a great debt to the paintings of Ellsworth Kelly and Frank Stella and to the architecture of Frank Gehry.
