'Blue gives colour its vibration'
Kinds of Blue bathes in a palette of blue sonorities and bluesy, suspended textures.
The work draws inspiration from four of Mark Rothko's blue-centric works, and also from the blue renderings in Derek Jarman's Chroma.
Jarman says that without darkness, we wouldn't perceive light.
The work is dedicated to my mother, who possesses perfect pitch, of colour
