About This Piece
The many colours in the reflections of the water and the graphic shape inspired me to paint this painting.
"I paint because it's there. I look at a scene, building, still life and see the patterns,
rhythms and colours.
I try and reflect this in the vivid beauty and colours of the Cote D'Azure. The patterns and
shapes of a still life and colour and vibrancy of cities like New York and London.
I see buildings as blocks of colour - shadows, unusual shapes, all of which I find fascinating.
As Henri Mattisse said: 'Colour was not given to us in order that we should imitate nature. It was
given to us to express our emotions'
