Kurt Black’s bold scene shows a well-judged and delightfully confident use of colour. His little house sits on silver sand under an azure sky and, for me, the most tantalising detail is the dark panel that draws you in through the doorway. This painting would hang happily in many locations, be it bedroom, day room or hall.

Kurt Black’s use of space and colour blocking is intense. This artwork is striking for both its composition and palette. Although the shapes are recognisable and the impression of a house is clear, the image appears somewhat dissected and broken down into an abstract form. At first appearing intentionally naïve, the precise angles and their interplay with the horizon along with the internal features of the house quickly spring to the fore. As this is a work on paper it would likely need framing under glass, while a simple black frame could further enhance the dramatic qualities of the composition. The artwork would position well in a contemporary space with an eclectic interior style.
