About this Artwork
Everything touches black, a play on word and ideas. In this painting every shape and color touches the black (or nearly) and in life there would be no white without the black and at some point everything touches black, the dark.
"I have often regarded my range of paint tubes and their myriad range of colours hues and tones. They contain and ponder on the fact that whilst in the tube the paint does not have colour, its only when exposed to the light that the blackness is dispelled!
Each of Annear’s paintings carry a portion of the space that he has been exploring since the beginning of his works. They offer our eyes something which stands beyond our perception.
In this lively composition, Annear offers a reflexion on life and death, light colours opposed to black, light and darkness.
