Gallery Notes:

Painted some two years after his major retrospective at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, Green Fuse is part of a significant body of work exploring interlacing grids of linear brushwork.  The Dilation Series refers directly to the way the pupils enlarge in response to optical stimuli.
