I quite like this recent National Gallery acquisition. Why? Well, its bright colours, simplified forms, and dystopian mood all remind me of my own work! Why would our NatGal go all the way to Berlin to grab this piece when they could have just purchased a Canadian GNAY? Here is an excerpt from their recent rejection letter to me “… while we find your use of colour and form masterful, your failure to portray cats in any meaningful way leaves us unable to come to terms at this time.” That’s that, then. Maybe not…
