Splitting and Stroking by Estelle Thompson

Splitting and Stroking by Estelle Thompson
In this painting the artist achieves the same delicacy and beauty which characterises her smaller works despite the demands of a large canvas. Using domestic rollers she paints a surface of subtle tones of green, marked with an imperfect grid. This regular vertical pattern is interrupted by a strong horizontal plane which appears to split the canvas revealing a hint of red beneath.
