winter in a lucerne park by paul klee

Magnolia Study 2, woven tapestry, cotton, polyester wefts, 14 cms H X W. Like the work featured in the preceeding chapter, this is influenced by an example of Paul Klee’s oeuvre, a winter study in a Lucerne park. A series of black shapes, the bare lines of winter tree trunks, have white outlines and individual colour areas. It was deceptively simple at first sight, but unfolded layer upon layer of subtlety. Though, in my garden as opposed to the Lucerne park, the magnolia bush discards its leaves in autumn; when its flowers begin to unfold, there is no distraction of colour or form, a species after my own heart.
