NICK HAIS ‘Six Folding Chairs’ 18 x 32 in / 45.5 x 81 cm    Acrylic on Canvas   2019
Six Chairs are scattered apparently randomly. Their wooden structures are in three  different colours whilst the canvas seats and backs are of a fourth colour. They cast  strong shadows on to the crazy-paving on which they are placed. The predominantly  linear quality of the chairs and paving create a complex interplay of pictorial elements.  The top of a table top glimpsed in the top left corner acts as an anchor point from which  the eye can travel by different routes across the painting.
