Matisse wrote of Polynesia “A whole universe is ripening here, bursting into stunningly, wonderfully decorative shapes and colours, extroadinary fruit – yellow, light green, the leaves a fine rich, luminous deep green and lagoons the colour of diamonds, emeralds and saphires, with orange and deep garnet pink of red mullets, and emerald green fish streaked with white against Prussian blue. With Matisse’s pictorial phantasies and the tropics as my muse, I use images and memories of tropical coral reefs, the weightlessness and freedom of swimming and diving underwater, and the magic of refracted light to distil my own Paradise.
