Grey, Violet and White No. 2, painted in St Ives, Cornwall in 2001 is "a poetic synthesis in paint of ‘being’ and ‘experience’. The image, going beyond appearances to surprise the viewer through its making - each brush mark a small gesture into the unknown - to communicate a sense of new possibilities in reflection for the viewer to discover."
