"I love Michael Harding’s oil paint for its density, body, and stability. I use his Ivory Black, which modulates beautifully between purple blacks, green blacks, blackish crimson, and other deep tones. I often work to get a certain darkly luminous buzz in the paintings, in which dark areas are informed by a subtle warm/cool color vibration. The spatial structure involves light constructed from color changes based upon relational color. This is not about shading with black or tinting with white; instead color resonance comes from closely related intervals of shifting color. The process often involves scraping and considerable reworking in multiple layers. I find Michael Harding’s oil paint to be strong, sturdy, and responsive to nuance. It never seems inert; it always seems alive. I can see why Sean Scully likes this paint."
