  1. Mesmerizingly subtle! For some reason makes that central vertical join line the focus, would be interested in how you see it.

    • Hi Natalie, thanks for commenting. Much appreciated. Yes that vertical join line does become very prominent. This painting was very difficult to photograph and it may be that the join line is actually more prominent in the photo than in real life. Nevertheless, as well as the kinetic buzz that takes place, I am very interested in the way that, when the two edges are joined, what was at the periphery becomes central, and takes on an emphasis that it doesn’t do when the edge is simply an outward edge.

    • Thanks Patrick. I really enjoyed seeing it shown at the Saturation Point stand at Sluice_2015.

    • Thank you Richard. I am pleased to hear you (and Natalie) use the term ‘mesmerising’ because that the work might be mildly trance-inducing is certainly one of my aims here.
