I have chosen Yvette Gellis for the power that she evokes in her painting. I was taken by the confidence and force of YvetteŐs brush marks, coming out of abstract expressionism yet evoking a complex interplay of contradictory marks reflecting a contemporary mood. Standing in front of Aqueous/Igneous I find myself engaged in Theatre, where perception directs movement, an exchange of energy between the viewer and the performance of paint.
