Dedicated to Richard Uttley
Whilst composing these miniatures I kept coming back to Agnes Martin’s exquisitely simple paintings. They have shown me over and over again how much is possible with lines and spaces. They are just grids and lines, and yet they evoke much more with the delicate layering of paint and beautiful imperfections.
These miniatures fluctuate between compressing or expanding, creating a bold line or subtle bands of faint colours.
