One of a series of works on linen made in 2018. The two main themes in this work were repetition and the tension between chance and control. The question asked was: ‘At what point does the painter surrender control to chance occurrences and surprises and how much does the painter then intervene… if at all?’ The controls in this painting were the dimensions and materiality of the surface, the choice of paint, mediums and method of application. Chance determined outcome with no subsequent intervention to make corrections.
