My work is concerned with the relationship of colour and form currently and the conversation I have been having with myself always ends up with something called universals. Susan Sontag and Kandinsky both talk about ‘conventions’ which is the same thing as far as I can see. These being the ‘priors’ that experience brings to the perception of anything - an artwork included. It seems we cannot get past that which has gone before as it will always have a bearing on how we perceive things in the moment.
