Green Is Savage Still
as the Monstrous
Fern-Forests
of Prehistory
2020
Die Chromatika is a new psychological theory of colour for the 21st Century, created by the artist in response to Goethe's 'Theory of Colours' and Rudolf Steiner's writings on colour.

Of green the artist wrote: I feel green is far from the peaceful colour most people think it is.

Green is like the garden in Tennessee Williams' Suddenly Last Summer - 'a tropical jungle in the prehistoric age of giant fern-forests when living creatures had flippers turning to limbs and scales to skin'.

I feel green is as relentless as nature, just as insatiable and just as savage.
