'Optic Twist' at Bury St Edmunds Art Gallery

Have recently been sent this picture of my latest work 'Optic Twist' which was specially commissioned by Bury St Edmunds Art Gallery for their exhibition 'Better than Grey: a serious consideration of colour'. This was the largest sculpture I have made to date measuring 45x24x12cm. Encapsulated in the acrylic is a hand woven leno fabric in cotton and nylon monofilament. The vivid highly contrasting stripes of colour, combined with the leno twists are designed to create dramatic optical effects and afterimages. Below is a detail of the fabric before it was cast:
