Painted in homage to Antonio Tapies, an artist who challenged the concept of academic teachings with “a disregard of traditional rules”. Layers and layers have been built up and then scratched back creating horizontal and vertical marks across the surface.The strong bold stripe of colour pays homage to Tapies’s ‘The Catalan Spirit’ and his refusal to bow to tyranny and oppression.
