This painting never really had a title. The one I used originally was just too pompous to live with, so 'Transition' was born.
It is one of my earliest paintings (c1979) and was created during a period in which I was interested in transitional shapes. Here, from the centre outwards, I was trying to morph from a triangular grid to a hexagonal structure before allowing a balance between the two shapes to emerge in the form of a traditional Islamic pattern. The colouring, which is derived from a Vasarely system, is not well controlled, hence the haphazard array of high and low lights. It would have worked much better as a hexagonal painting rather than rectangular.
The painting is owned by my Mother (it is the only one of mine she likes).
