The ice cream cone is a framed original painting by Dorset artist Nick Hais.
The tension between non-figurative pictorial surface and illusionist pictorial depth is at play here. Divided vertically into exact halves, this painting concentrates attention on lines, shapes and colour patterns, rhythms and balances in order to create a structured colour/shape composition. The apparently mundane subject-matter, which demands attention nevertheless, provides an opportunity to utilize variations of colour, texture and shape for their own sake.
