Morris Louis was aligned with Color Field Painting and Post-Painterly Abstraction. His paintings were free of any external references. Colour was the subject of his paintings. His method of using unmixed colour was intended to distance himself from the work. I was inspired on seeing his ‘Unfurled’ and ‘Stripe’ paintings. I have come from an ink brush painting background and appreciated the brushstrokes, which gave me an insight into the artist. My current practice is concerned with, among other things, colour, and how to make it sing.
