Linear Musings... the name refers to the line of cryptic text, at the bottom of each work.
The titles are derrived from a series of poems entitled 'Little Usherette' by Michael Scott, both cerebral and surreal.
The works play on a subconcious nostalgic recognition of the stylised Metallic Damask wall paper motif with the base panels are overlayed with multiple layers of Translucent Lacquers, Resins, Irridescent Powders and Heavy Impasto to the upper sections along with the line of Nickel studs represents the division of the Abstract above and the Emphatic below.
The Baby Blue band at the bottom of the works pays reference to New Birth, whilst simultaneously the Cryptic Text is applied in aluminium funeral wreath lettering, alluding to mortality and the circle of life.
The codified Neon Symbols pay direct reference to the Supporting Text, providing an Ambiguity within their apparant graphic incompletion. An empathetic engagement can take place as the final missing lines are allowed to formulate in the mind of the viewer.
