• composition: “the action of combining; the fact of being combined; combination (of parts or elements of a whole)”
  • a composition derives expression from aggregation and from the patterns of interference which emerge from aggregated elements
  • a composition is inspired by the question “how many dimensions can be compressed into a single work of art?”
  • a composition is formed of a series of layers which are superposed to generate intensity and complexity
  • a composition, though of fixed size, implies that it could be a maquette of a larger work or, conversely, that it is full size and could be represented by a scale model
  • a composition implies its subdivision into smaller elements and its aggregation with similar or dissimilar elements to form a larger whole
  • a composition is unique, but it is also part of a series sharing a theme based upon common rules. Each theme implies other unrealised and yet to be explored variations
