While he has always denied that his Construction – Tondo paintings ever concern anything other than themselves, Geoff Thornley’s work frequently conveys an intense response to the vastness of nature and the celestial effects of natural phenomena. The colour palette of this construction with a field of blue intersected with white, actively suggests Pacific skies and aerial journeys. (Te Moananui a Kiwa, 2005)
