About artist/note:

Tousignant urges his viewer to make direct contact with the sensation of colour – its taste, texture and temperament.  Squares of uniform colour sing with intensity, confirming Briony Fer’s oberservation that the monochrome has “remained one of abstract painting’s most resilient and repeated strategies.”  The diptych is pure sensation.
