About this work
Grant’s table set for two is an excuse to experiment with the construction of space and the depiction of light. This highly organised composition uses few colours and short parallel brush strokes, inspired by Cézanne, to create a visual balance and interplay between flat and curved, shiny and transparent surfaces.
