JILL MIRZA ‘Deckchairs in the Wind’ 16 x 16 in  /  40.5 x 40.5 cm    Acrylic on Canvas   2011
In a painting full of movement and contrast, the striped deckchairs appear to  dance in the wind, abandoned by the occupants. Patterns can be traced in the well-  trodden sand. The figures turned away are facing the sea but are bit players in the scene  which has an empty space as its central focus. The colours are fundamentally the  complimentary colours blue and orange.
