Literature: Tom Hopkins: New Paintings, Galerie de Bellefeuille, Montreal, 1997, page 4, the artist in conversation with Guido Molinari.

Note: “For me, tension is the basis for all life. Certainly tension between two or three colours in a painting is what makes the painting vibrant, all contrasts – warm/cool, broad areas against detail, organic against mechanical. And of course, in many of my paintings I am interested in the wild versus the tame, water in nature against water imprisoned ‘civilized’ in a bowl or container.” - T. Hopkins
