A recent abstract work. This and others in the series were inspired by reading “The Alfred Wallis Factor” and general research into the St. Ives arts colony and the birth of abstraction in the area known as West Penwith (a place where a lot of my own work has been conceived and created).
The creative / technical process to make these works was extremely arcane & complex and each new incarnation of this style is part of journey of discovery / rediscovery to help build a new calligraphy of process.
Using an image of soft round hills, abstract geometrics are introduced to warp and hide the origin — yet beyond the machinations of the city lies the essential material of landscape. Still there, underpinning our modern games.
