"The Bench by the Pond-A Painting in Oil by Andrew Highton-1998

Illustrated below is a painting from 1998 approx 2 metres x 50 cm in oil paint. One of a series of tightly controlled cropping of the subject area that attempted to reduce the "information" available to the viewer leaving out (for example) the opposite bank of the pond, and thereby (hopefully) to increase the latent mystery in an everyday scene. Below the first illustration is a detail from the painting. Click on the image to enlarge it then back-page to return to the blog.
