Part of a new series of works entitled Dilations which will begin to explore abstracted linear forms. Some more mathematical, some generated from nature, some generated through sound.

This is the very beginnings of a new direction which i’ve wanted persure for some time now. The last few years has been quite a learning curve – trying out new techniques and experimenting with materials i’ve not utilized before.

This piece is 30 x 30 inches by 1 inch deep.

Background composed from fine iron grains which have been allowed to oxidize at differing rates.

The linear image has been built up layer upon layer using heavy structured acrylics. The initial impression was created using opacity reduced metalics which can be seen ghosted underneath the bolder opaque orange tones which defined the image as it developed.

This piece is stamped + signed on the revers (glass siren wax seal in bottom right reverse)
