I am currently doing some experimental work of painting a noughts and crosses grid and then placing O & X in turn by using numbers 1 to 9 drawn from rummikub tiles. I have decided to use the colour vermillion because of it’s resonances with blood and life. I have decided to use acrylics rather than watercolour because of its permanence and to avoid the resonance and reference of traditional spotting and colouring of photographs.
