Gradating echoes

Posted on November 14, 2012


 A friend and I were going through some art materials that used to belong to her late father-in-law a little while ago. We came across these colour exercises he had done which she was going to throw away. I suggested she could frame them in a configuration similar to the above and that one of her children might like it. 

I think they are beautiful.

Even though I had never met him, I felt strangely close to him as we went through these items of his; handwritten notes, watercolour sketches and old tins with Dynamo labels…

And that’s what comforts me about making art – you never know where and when people may view it. Even long after you are gone.
