Robert Hunter works from a simple geometric division of the canvas to consider the interrelation of light and colour at the threshold of perception amplifying the inherent luminosity of individual blocks and bands of colour to create optically active zones of light that seem to be liberated from the material substance of paint. Our attention is drawn to the psychological dimension of vision, particularly as it regards the subjective experience of colour.
