Through improvised drawings, Geoff Machin evolves clear visual ideas which.Because of his unusual way of fitting together individual shapes these, in turn, become precisely structured compositions. Sometimes pristine whiteness is preserved and contrasted with black line, whilst in other works, surfaces are sensitively textured with grey crayon, or acrylic colour is applied. These intriguing abstract works are concerned with interaction: between flatness and implied space, containment and freedom, surface reality and atmospheric qualities, as well as strongly suggested movement against static structure.
