I really like the middling size and tall shape of this green, blue and yellow paintngs. I don´t know why, why would I? They remind me, with their scraped and combed about oily freshness, of David Hockney´s apple-green white and salmon-pink stoned monochromes from the seventies as well as Richter´s stage designs for The Fairie Queen and Shrek. I like the fact that current painting is direct and quite comfortable with its immediate circumstances, not forgetful or apologetic or trying to lose itself and than find itself again as an aide memoire in an endless, mundane game of popping out from behind shrubby bushes and spruces, or rocks and surprising oneself and few friends from odd angles and becoming lonely. Matthew Arnatt & David Mollin, 100 Reviews April 2003, London
