Description
Vertiginous was painted while Day was in London in the 1960's. A Mediterranean headland painted in an English winter, the work nevertheless harks back to memories of Northland where, as a youth, he was impressed by the orange-red clay cliffs along the west coast. This painting, with its bold colours and off-centre composition, seems to lie on the edges of figurative, abstract and symbolic styles.
