Geometric Procession 1 (no 16, 2013, acrylic on paper, 70.5 x 100 cm, $ 3,250)
Tony Jackson says of this painting: “I am drawn to this work because of the sense of movement and energy contained within it. Forms and colour are linked in a very dynamic way. To me, forms represent emotions and a strong statement about our built environment. Forms and colour show me love, harmony, displacement, alienation, and hierarchy. Ancher’s colours are capable of igniting neuronal paths and bring forth strong emotional associations. One can dwell indefinitely on the artist’s bold brushstrokes and complex layering of paint. Every subsequent encounter with the artwork is bound to uncover bold nuances and fresh insights.”
The exhibition is current until Saturday, 1 March 2014.
