"These are all very powerful expressionist works that pay homage to the Fauves (Wild Beasts) of the late (19th and early 20th )whose use of pure and brilliant colours applied directly from the tube created a sensually provocative and political presence before the spectator. The iconic/ironic references to de Stijl and Mondrian in the backgrounds is also worth acknowledging. The reign of Trump? I hope that this is soon over!
