Colours that set the space and mood, colour areas, their shape texture and scale in relation to other colour areas, creating a liveness. So the characteristic I pick up on is the use of colour to structure the space of the painting. Alan’s work is intuitive, backed up by years of experience, which then reveals his characteristic style. Intuition and response are for the artist to realise during the activity of creating a painting, for me as viewer I see only the final result; spatial structure, arrived at through colour. My favourite painting in this show, is “When Cools Collide”. I get a sense of very clear decision making even though the application of paint is very free.
