GRIDS (1965-70)

Ian wrote the following sometime in late 60ís and contemporary to the Grids and Abstracts:
- Painting is the chromatic structure of surface.
- The structure will be 2 dimensional.
- When the structure requires 3 dimensions, it will cease to be painting and become construction.
- Painting is governed by basic perception of order which defines the square and the circle.
- Painting will not represent the visual appearance of nature.
- The structure will be amplified by the use of colour.
- Colour will be functional and not emotional.
- The armature is the total area of the painting from which the structure is derived.
- The painting being a finite structure will refer only to itself.
