A Detail

I've been making a few pieces of late with alot going on in them, working very freely, just responding to what I put down. I then like to pick out or find smaller areas. From one image several interesting compositions can be found. It's a great way to generate work and produces plenty of interesting results. I have been heavily influenced by the design group 8vo and in particular their early work in the 1980's for Factory of which The Durutti Columns Circuses and Bread cover is just brilliant. The 3 members worked on the collage for the sleeve together each responding to what the others put down.

A Knife, Tape and Letterforms

Another off-cut type piece.
