About the work:

The English actor John Grillo said “Abstract painting is on level with music. A physical outburst from within. It’s not the idea that is created and then you start painting. It’s always a challenge to shape something from nothing, to do the impossible”. I can relate to that. Red Unsaid started with a notion. Colours shapes and texture were added and subtracted, painted over, scratched and blended until the artwork struck a chord to say that something that I love had emerged.
