Artist Statement

Title : Polaris

A free form circle within a circle is at the heart of this piece. The strong diagonal cut from corner to corner is employed to direct the light and dark along with the cut line of the circle shape. The verticals of wood have been shaped by sanding to give the piece some fluidity.

The background is two layers of paint. The first is a selection of colours that keep within the line of the diagonal and circle shape. Over the colours are sections of black and white paint, these have been scratched back while still wet to subtly reveal the colour field underneath.

To disrupt to continuity in the vertical stripes a single orange length and two blues are present.

An intriguing contemporary piece of work.

Made from birch plywood.

Painted in acrylic.

This piece measures:

Height: 24 inches (61cm)

Width: 33 inches (84cm)

Depth: 1 inch (2.5cm)

I have installed a recessed keyhole slot on the back. The piece is ready to hang with just one screw in a wall. The keyhole hanging method also allows the piece to hang flush and secure to the wall.


I have signed and dated the piece on the reverse side.
