Paul Jenkins had an epiphany one day after producing a painting without forethought - that through his process of discovery, he was simply acting as a medium. Out of chaos, which he equated with the natural, came glimpses of order - paint coalescing into an independent presence, producing a phenomenon he saw as the result of chance, not of will. Central to the creation of Jenkins’s work was the subconscious; submerging himself in his process, he would surface with an image from the depths of his psyche. Since 1960, Jenkins titled all his works Phenomena, followed by poetic allusions created by his reaction to the image and the effect of colours in relation to each other. This way of titling preserved the works as unaccounted-for visual phenomena - experiences visible only through the collision of chance, method and material. Jenkins’s works from the late 1970s demonstrate a mastery of technique, as he pours delicate veils of colour that gently meld while retaining their integrity and light. In this painting from 1978, a red flame rises from the base amidst blooming pastel hues, invoking the warmth and beauty of a crackling hearth.
