Artist’s notes: This construction relates in composition to the series of three constructions - Split, Fractured, Extended. At its centre is a dark solid - a graphite coated cube. The cube is intersected by four planes, printed with bespoke semi-transparent inks created with a Jetrix digital printer. Tonally the colours are chromatic greys - each a different percentage of yellow, cyan, magenta and black.

 

This construction is fixed to the base with only one corner of a transparent plane, giving a precarious look to the work, as if it has landed abruptly on some strange surface.
