Media: oil on canvas

Size: 46.0 x 109.5 cm

Acquired: 1984; Loan; Derek Williams Trust

Accession Number: NMW A(L) 563

One of a series of works of the same title in the double/triple cube format habitually used by the artist. Hitchens's intention to create 'visual sound' through 'patches and lines of pigment which have an effect on our aesthetic consciousness' was influenced by Wassily Kandinsky's theories of abstraction. Although derived from landscape motifs, this composition is almost entirely abstract.
