The Wonderful World of Abstraction removes the geometric, optical painting from the canvas. From the outside the work comes to life as others negotiate the contents, step inside and disappear in the sea of multicoloured satin, no sooner have you entered than you are invisible to all around you. Quite the opposite of the ‘please do not touch’ works that we are familiar with; The Wonderful World of Abstraction turns hardedge abstraction into a colourful wonderland where you can become lost in the luxury of the touch and texture.
