“Furrows in a field…colourful crop rows that run so straight, fields of wheat or flax or sunflowers – such agricultural perspectives often have considerable visual appeal for me.”

—Ivan Eyre

In Field Steps, Ivan Eyre uses the rectangles of the fields as a geometric motif, which marches across the flattened plain. Eyre has stated that he paints “non-objectively…in the guise of a landscape,” and this painting particularly reflects this point of view. However, Eyre still reacts to his experienced landscapes in a visceral way. He explained, “When I pass by a series of fields on a bicycle, the point at which a field’s border seems to stand up vertically is the point at which I feel the urge to stop. It may be that that’s a way of extending my own vertical presence into the fields. At any rate, it’s a point at which the fields seem to speak directly to me.” Field Steps is a striking image, particularly in Eyre’s carefully chosen colour palette. Its dazzling blues, which range from pale and glowing to a deep blue-violet, appear richer in contrast to the velvety black and pale wheaten tones.
