Russia II (1998) – a screen print by English artist, Mary Webb – is exemplary of her exquisite use of colour, which is clearly defined with exacting precision. The considered choice of colour in this work was sourced from Russian churches. Webb deciphered the colours cast by light pouring through the stain glass windows onto the interior architecture of the church. The artist strives to match the colours faithfully from her personal experience in both her paintings and prints. Meticulously planned, each work balances subtle interplays of colour with compositions that avoid one focal point, through her exploration of diagonal compositions. The blocks of colour in relation to form creates a serene quality to the work, inviting the viewer to enter a contemplative and uplifted state.
