Graham Dean

"Working the Curve" Watercolour on Indian Rag Paper, 30 x 60,5 inches

"In his tough, uncompromising paintings, Graham Dean is revealed as a sensualist. He is intoxicated by colour and by his pleasure in the sense of touch. He is engaged too, by the textural qualities and the technical potential of his materials: he loves the thick Indian paper he paints on, the transparency and opacity his medium is capable of delivering. ....
The association of watercolour with the tasteful and polite can no longer be maintained. Dean disabuses us of these outmoded references. Under his hand the medium has come of age, in toughness and capability it stands against any other media a painter may use."
Lynne Green

With thanks to Mr. DEAN.
