The Red Dinghy again

The Red Dinghy Again is another remake of a screenprint of one of a series of paintings of Okahu Bay boats. This colourful series exploded out of the experience of seeing Seurat’s ‘La Grande Jatte’ paintings on a trip to Chicago.

“Seurat’s daring in his composition & colour gave me the courage needed to move a step away from preconceived ideas, “why not?” said the voice that strung me along”.

Within the classified conventions of composition, Michael too could liberate colour.
