Cleave Too (2018)  is a dynamic abstract oil painting by Jack McConville (b. 1984, Scotland). Emerging from the yellow base, soft layers of lilac and turquoise hues intermix with dynamic and bold strokes of dark green and red. White and fading geometric shapes drop down from the top towards the middle. Each colour, texture, movement and shape simultaneously stand from and harmonise with the rest of the painting. Built with deft handling of paint, each mark and gesture of the painting reflects Jack’s  rigorous examination of subject matter.
