Spring Colour Study No.19

Webb, Mary
Mary Webb describes her work as an exploration of what can be done 'with a range of strongly contrasted coloured elements of similar size, arranged instinctively within a restricted format, attempting to make the maximum happen with limited means.' Although the emphasis on the rectilinear and a limited, bold palette call to mind the work of Mondrian or Malevich, there is neverthless a playful element more in tune with the works of Roy Lichtenstein and the British artist, Julian Opie.
