This watercolour, a rare piece from my own collection, is being made available to collectors. It intriguingly anticipated subsequent formal theory work that absorbed me for the next ten or so years—the theory of Covert Scale Structures, published in 2003 under the title, Principles of nature: towards anew visual language. You will note the grid-like pattern of interlocking forms. The grid consists of interfacing 'elements' like phonemes constructed of smaller self-similar parts; resonant with each other yet possessing a distinct identity. This allegorically pointed toward later works in which I developed a 'genetic or syntactical principle' in visual art and composition. (The above watercolour is presently unframed.)
