"Years ago you sent a postcard,
it's the one that always made me laugh
It said 'send for reinforcements
cause there's too much here for me to love'"
"I can see you on the radar
but you know I could never bring you back."

2. Winston Roeth: Working with raw pigment and a tempera medium, Roeth’s spellbinding paintings have a dense matt surface that draws the viewer into the intensity of the colour alone, inviting long contemplation of the shifting picture plane.

Roeth’s grid-works are reductive compositions that are made in an indecisive formula, as Roeth describes his practice as exploratory. There is a vibrant intensity in his grids, a visual experience, which through contrasts in light and colour forms a captivating final structure. (text via here)
