Description: This exhibition featured the newly commissioned triptych Mantle of Many Colours, the inspiration being that unsung hero, the somewhat underrated cuttlefish. In an attempt to mimic its astounding ability to change both colour and texture, the artist experimented with unconventional painting techniques and materials, including wax, beads and colour-changing pigments. Other related artwork was shown in conjunction.
