If asked to describe in a few words the painting surface by Sydney artist Christopher Firrmstone I would say they are ‘seamless, elegant and joyful’. Ghost Colours is an exhibition of exquisite delicacy. 

Ghost Colours Blue/Purple is overwhelmingly remarkable in size and appearance. it is a compositional conundrum for the viewer. The scale and materiality retains its seamless tonality from light to dark composed by the ascending colourfield from blues to purple matte vanished watercolour in paper fibre on the horizontal plane. The vertical plane is juxtaposed by an intriguing choice of material anodised aluminium. The smooth integration of the hard-edged anodised aluminium in contrast to the subtle lightness of colour and surface texture is of an exceptional quality. The painting is a clear and concise indication Firmstone holds an air of sophistication and confidence at mid career.
