Ptolemy Mann's recent works on paper are the results of recent explorations of accidental colour and unconscious colour.
It transpires that these two ideas; when filtered through the act of painting, reveal a surprising vivacity and capture a dynamic colourful moment.
Ptolemy says 'Over the last three years I have been generating these new works whenever (and wherever) I can, using the act of painting as a personal meditative process. These paintings are about how I feel within a certain place at a specific moment. In complete contrast to the exquisite slowness of the woven artworks these paintings are punches of spontaneous, emotional colour.'
