Those that merge to a pinpoint represent convergence to an absolute centre - a fixed point of reference, comparable to a founding of the world. As such, the pinpoint is an Axis Mundi - like a totem pole with connection to the realms above and below. The cityscapes, with luminous coloured edges explore time-space and the illusory nature of this realm. The rectangular forms can be interpreted as buildings or building blocks. These works are not representative of but hint at other-worldly cuboidal tesseracts. A tesseract is a four-dimensional analogue of a cube or ‘hypercube’ that cannot be properly rendered in our three-dimensional space, let alone on an ostensibly two-dimensional canvas. These ‘Tesseract cityscapes’ are interrupted by a representation of a road at their centre. The perception of how and in what direction this road runs is relative to the perception of the viewer. The road, of itself, is thus a ‘line in the sand’ - in either the vertical or horizontal. As such these paintings can be hung in the vertical or horizontal.
