Notes

‘Through the corridor in the room behind me is a large canvas with crude colour rectangles and odd shapes. I watched a video podcast about a retrospective of Matisse’s colour cut-outs a couple of days ago. I started this arrangement shortly after seeing that video. I also found a reproduction of another Matisse cut-out that I stuck to the wall over a year ago. Seems like I’ve been meaning to break things up/apart into big crude shapes, but the moment to do so has only now arrived. This may lead to a large series of works or perhaps only a few. Before I know it I’ll find myself working on something else.’1
