"Towards the end of the series of paintings I did with my eyes shut, I made a couple of pieces using dots of "interference" paints. I became interested in the way in which, in different combinations of colours, backgrounds and opacity, they could both create an experience of three dimensions, and confuse and addle the brain. The dissonance series followed." - Rachel McDonnell, 2021
