‘It is very easy to be seduced by the paintings of June Redfern. They are beautiful objects with a richness of colour, applied in generous liquid brush strokes that evoke a sensuous response in the spectator. Irrespective of what they actually mean, these paintings emphasise the sheer pleasure of looking. They are paintings that can be indulged in, that have an almost hypnotic effect. Flashing yellows and reds, deep saturated blues and luscious greens flow together in broad romantic sweeps that have a lilting almost symphonic quality that offers such beauty and delight that it becomes difficult to draw oneself away and to stop looking at them.’
