In Composition Roger Selden has used delicate combinations of muted beiges and blues, with hints of red and yellow. The drawn detail appears free and unplanned. Selden’s work is Abstract Expressionist in style and he also includes collage and drawn elements within his paintings. Since the early 1970s he has lived and worked in Italy. The brightness of Italian light and colour, and aspects of Italian culture such as architecture and Modern design are important features in his work.
