Our December Release: Freesias in Green Glass

New Release, Anthony Springfordanthony springfordComment

Our latest print is ready for release. Freesias in Green Glass is another work by Anthony Springford. As with others of Anthony’s work, the familiar subject matter is an excuse to explore relationships of colour, rhythm and form, and as always there is an element of humour.

According to Anthony:

 
In this work I was channeling the legacy of Paul Cezanne by exploring the way surprising combinations of colour can effectively describe objects and the movement of light. I was paying particular attention to the relationships of insides and outsides, or surfaces and absences, in an arrangement of shells, glasses and flowers. The more ambiguous object is an old wooden ornamental cat that is missing its head.
