A primary response to colour, paint and process.
Selected new works by Peter Sesselmann and Stevi Cannon.
Painted to jazz soundtracks, using his signature palette of blue, red, yellow, Peter conducts the paintbrush across the surface like a soundboard. The canvas or panel becomes his instrument and the paintbrush a tool to write abstract notes as he jams along to the music he hears and loves.
Working from the structure of the natural grain of the wood, and using acrylic paint from dry pigment, Stevi uses a range of individual painterly techniques to explore her first response to paint, colour and process. A series of layers are carefully built ­— hiding and revealing her actions — inviting the viewer to decode the mysterious surface.
