04-16 Composition 03

Many artists have created stripe pictures: Bridget Riley and Barnett Newman to name two illustrious examples. This one has a more sculptural quality. In abstract situations we tend to read blue as sky, and therefore space. That's helped here by the fact that it's a very even blue. The green areas are more shaded and so appear convex. Red and white contribute contrast to help them along. Apologies for the quality of the photo. This painting is framed under glass and I forgot to photograph it first!
