This piece is the most recent of the series, however it is placed first as I feel it makes a perfect introduction to all the main themes of the Root2art canon. The work started life as a conceptual diagram developed for the ‘geometrics’ section of this site. It is a modern visual expression of a section of an ancient Zen text.

Maybe this is the most overtly cheerful of all my compositions. I normally do not set out to create a piece with a particular emotional ‘feel’, but at the inception of this I’d been listening to a track by Apex Twin that had an uniquely playful and innocent, almost childish quality to it. In this instance I thought, this is the expression I want to create in this piece, and something of that music rubbed off in its geometry.

I have used this composition in various forms over the years as a Root2art insignia. It remains distinct at diminished resolution despite its level of complexity. Viewing my work at a thumbnail size is something I do frequently when developing work to assess tonal structure. For me this piece demonstrates many of the essential structural properties I seek in composition.

The central part of this piece was my first successful Root2art composition to bring together multiple motifs. The logic I ended up using to order the elements in Contrapunctus is very simple, but only came as the result of many months of trial and error. It wasn’t until a number of years after this work that I would find more evolved geometric logic that equalled the integrity of this first polymotif work.

This is one of many variations based on the very first geometric model I experimented with in the mid 90s. The work related to this piece culminated in a 3D piece in 2000 which is the purest expression of the constituent parts I have found to date. The 2D model, however has continued to fascinate me for the last decade and it has aged into this creature which reveals many elements from successive reworking.

I would describe the emphasis in this piece as being with its thrust and torque. The composition is only one of a few in my body of work to use the family of geometry that has its roots in the relationship between equilateral triangle and circle. Simply put, the major part of my output is intentionally limited to exploring only the of the square and circle. Compositionally, rotational movement is perhaps best explored using this ‘triadic’ geometry.

One of my biggest contemporary influences is the music of Arvo Part. The spiritual intensity and purity I find in his music is something I long to express in my own art. How to do this, or if indeed it is at all possible with the language I am evolving, is a matter that continually intrigues and inspires me. Whilst I feel a million miles from the expression I seek, I feel this piece is my most well defined movement in that direction.
