2. Turner, Monet & Twomby

Am still stunned. To see the brushstrokes was achingly beautiful and uplifting. The Twomby series entitled Hero & Leander depicts the sea swallowing up Leander.
Each huge painting (4 in the series) moves from blackness through greens to White then a sparse but powerful leaving message in text.
But there is an astonishing sense of depth and space In each painting. The second in the series speaks of that wild yet satiated well of the sea having taken of Leander. Beautiful rhythms of whites and greens heralds with long long strokes of maybe a brush on a pole from a distance ( the how?)
