Working titles: The Mystery of the visible, Living light, Daylights, Things of a day. Living daylights is an archaic reference to the eyes. It is something my dad used to say but unfortunately it has lost the original connotation.

A Defence of Poetry

"For the mind in creation is as a fading coal, which some invisible influence, like an inconstant wind, awakens to transitory brightness" - Percy Bysshe Shelley

Composition with large red plane, yellow black grey and blue.
Piet Mondrian

Flatness is the compositional focus of my painting. While working on it, I kept thinking about Mondrian's grid-based works and his "primary" colours. I found the image above today (April 2015) but I couldn't remember if I had seen it before. It makes me wonder about the influence of subconscious memory.
