I’m glad to say I’ve reached my 50th WordPress post. Here are 5 minimal, as yet untitled works from last year. I like the idea that humble materials like graph paper and cardboard used for packaging can be beautiful. Compositional balance is again a major concern. The soft, muted colours balance well when there is less happening.

I was looking at a lot of Robert Ryman works when I made these.
