Reference:
Irene Burschedt, “Home from London - with tropical touch” (newspaper interview, April 1973, at the Rudy Komon Gallery), the artist commented:
“I discovered the tropical colours in London but they look better in Australia .... Everything is done in one movement. I paint with musical impulse, the same as musicians when they improvise .... my paintings are a series of chords and notes .... [and are] like the moment when a high diver enters the water.”
