paul nash - this peice of work shows an image of german plane parts from a scenario the artists witnessed in the war, representing a metal sea. i like the use of minimal colours in contrast with the different shades of them colours i think it creates a picture which looks like an image formed in the artists mind rather than a realistic image.
