Artwork page for ‘North Sound’, John Hoyland, 1979 This painting adds both material texture through paint and compositional structure through form and colour. The drama of the variety of painted marks – knifed, flung, pooled or stained – complements the intensity of colour. The relationship between the monumental grouping of slabs of colour and the blue ground holds the work in a restless tension between colour and form.
