Initially, the work was made with mahogany and all colour eliminated
in a desire to explore the properties of the material and to
define as clearly as possible the structure of the form. The
grain of the wood gave directional value indicating a pathway
through each piece and revealing its method of construction.
Subsequent work began to explore how structure could be related
to colour, with specific choices made according to different
ordering principles in relation to the construction of each piece.
A shift to working with aluminium allowed for greater stability
in the projection of linear elements, with the work of the late
1980’s and early 1990’s exploring structures which
moved away from the orthogonal and articulated the space in more
dynamic ways. Each element represents a particular journey between
two given points in space, each relating to the structure of
the whole. Colour values for the linear elements relate to their
location and directional value, with all colours mixed proportionally
from three primary colours.
