"Hearne gives us abstract art in its most labyrinthine form. Early theologians equated the visual with the ethical, beauty representing good, and its ugly counterpart evil. Hearne’s paintings hark back to the medieval Islamic artists who believed in the divine power of mathematics. Hearne's talent is to combine jewel-like colours and intricate patterns in canvases that transfix."
