Lot Essay

'Colour for me is very personal, even though I set out intentionally, like everything else I do with my work, with a ready-made structure ... I think the very basic drive which keeps me constant, is the fact that I need to push the ideas as found over the edge where it happens for me; that is, on my painted surface. I feel it's reinvigorated and new. So, colour is a sense of a very personal dilemma. I'm adjusting colour almost entirely through emotional leads. Colour plays an enormous part in my work, if not the most important part'

(Frank Bowling, interviewed by Robert Doty, New York, 14 September 1971).
