In the early nineties I saw an exhibition of large abstract canvases by Howard Hodgkin at the Hawyard Gallery in London. I was and still am very taken by his work and one of the elements that stuck with me was the way in which he treated the frame as part of the picture. A few years ago I started a series of paintings of birds in flight and experimented with the idea of the birds literally flying out of the painted picture frame. I’ve completed several of these and find that they work best on a fairly large scale. I wrote ‘with apologies to Sir HH’ on the back of the first of these paintings. There are I guess few original ideas left in art. Discuss.
