Artist's Description

No, this is not a copy of one of Mark Rothko’s paintings. I don’t know if he painted any in exactly this colour combination. It’s also smaller than most of his works, “weighing in” at 50×70cm on orange photo card in pastels. I chose the colours I was in the mood for and worked very fast in pastel. I tried to feel about my painting what Rothko might have felt about his. The struggle for expression outside convention, the desire to leave behind the trappings of art and go for a more intense metaphysical experience.
