Untitled (abstract screen)
19 May 1929 - 25 Jul 2014
Stylistically, this work is from a series produced in the early 1980s, in which Richard Larter focused on ideas gleaned through his reading of geometric or Ptolemaic astronomy. These works use a repeated circular motif which appears to rotate like giant cogs within a glass prism. Larter's rainbow palette and patterned surface – with its small mosaic-like dabs of paint, was created using a small sponge roller. The precisely arranged mosaic of clear, brilliant colour pulsates with energy.
