SILK SQUARES, 1968-1973

Engaging with the material substance of colours on receptive grounds is a central component of my abstract painting activities, where the colours themselves inform image construction.


These fabrics belong to a large group of dyed silk squares made after I left art school in the mid-1960s. With Procion dyes and wax resist on silk, I explored shape definition and incidental colour effects within the technical demands of the medium. I was also learning to build colour images with an economy of transparent layers.
