Artist's description:

Constructed over a few hours in 2002, 'Moments in Time and Space' is a collage of various rectangles of information which I have either created or collected since 1965.

The oldest element is the rectangle of cardboard painted streaky black containing a white and black parallel lines and a white outline square. This was produced whilst at Uppingham School as some kind of appreciation of the work of the Dutch artist, Piet Mondrian. Little did I know that rectangles and right angles would come to predominate as compositional formats within my own work, years later.

The use of by-products of artistic practice is inherent in this piece, each element being a self contained item of some aesthetic quality but now benefiting from a newly fabricated context to validate its appearance as part of an art piece. Apart from the length of retractable ruler, every part has the hand of the artist in its production, including the musical notation. I wrote the composition, 'Movements in an Empty Room' in January 1977, in response to attending the wake in the house of my just departed Grandmother.

The youngest element is the digital colour image of two independently shod feet entering a room over a trompe-l'oeil floor of a rural French 'Mairie'.

The whole is set in a shallow space frame behind a sheet of clear acrylic which gently reflects the gaze of the viewer and his or her occupied space.

Materials used:

Mixed Media : Variously printed and painted images collaged onto canvas and board in wooden frame with clear acrylic panel.
