In Scooting Obliquely Louise Tuckwell continues her distinctive exploration of the interaction of colour and form. Tuckwell’s handling of tone through a selection of colours that vary in chromatic intensity reaches a new maturity in these recent paintings. The eye is momentarily drawn forward into purple, grey and charcoal voids, before dancing across surfaces of yellows, reds, tangerines and pale blues. Stripes feature as anchoring elements, forming areas of repetition and repose that play against contrastive diagonals. Compositional symmetry and subtle perspectival shifts suggest an abstract architectural language, revealing the influence of travel and research undertaken in Italy in April 2015.
