AN OLD FARMHOUSE is barely discernible amidst the trees and bramble. From the vantage point of a twilight traveller, the bizarre and anomalous sunset takes the form of the old building, which is then reflected in its tiny window. This visual echo evokes the temporality of life and our connection to sol.
Mark Rothko, the revered mid 20th century artist, claimed that his large,coloured rectangle paintings were not, in fact abstract. Conversely, I claim that this new painting,in which the viewer may or may not discover a house set in a twilight roadside field, is, in one sense, abstract.
