Binary  Impulse
£330

A continuation of the Limitary Patterns theme, this image has taken several months to evolve. The events of the last few weeks (June 2016) have perhaps helped crystallise the idea for the shapes and colours which weren’t working before. The images and ideas we associate with man’s boundaries are now juxtaposed with the symbolism of a  crusade.

Shot after us in storm, o’erblown hath laid
Of Heaven received us falling;”

Your bodies may at last turn all to Spirit,
Improv’d by tract of time, and wingd ascend
