Once upon a time, a donkey began to paint...
Sometime after creating these paintings I read an interview with Australian artist Peter Tyndall - he said;
“We can go back much earlier to Malevich and others with black and white rectangles. Many felt this was an end point in representation, but it was when I was able to see that there’s something interesting about an empty rectangle as an image and joining that up to the object [the actual hanging artwork]. And I know this can sometimes sound confusing!” (1)
