“My painting …is a whisper in reply to a shout.” Perle Fine
Perle Fine entrances me with her use of colour. The paintings in her Cool Series are forcefully magnificent, one colour enhancing another, just by placement on the canvas. In an interview with Dorothy Seckler in 1968 she talks about a colour sublimating itself to another colour. Fiercely Remote , 1961, with its impressive purples is a favourite. It speaks to me, in a subtle and mystical way, about vulnerability and strength. My painting, above, seeks to do likewise.
