Sturgis' painting explores a more deadpan approach to building up overlapping forms. Its shaped format accentuates the qualities of a decorative border or detail, which on closer inspection gives way to a quirky, more individual anthropomorphism of funky shapes which form the broader areas. Sturgis plays with this idea of taste, retro-chic and the sheer exuberance and intensity of colour to produce highly charged chromatic and tightly designed abstractions.
