Title: After Leonardo
Artist: Charles Inge
Dimensions: 120 x 160 cm

In Inge’s canvas, a colourful explosive form expands widthwise prismatically, recalling the work of Sonia and Robert’s Delauney whose modernist paintings hold rhythmic and vibrant striations of colour. The present work depicts unconstrained and un-restricted energy above what could be conceived of as a small house. A creative bloom or psychedelic mushroom cloud casts a shadow over this tiny structure. Perhaps it’s the same energy that the bell jars have contained, or released into existence.
