Peter Randall-Page’s new work, is the latest example of his interest in the relationship between variations in the natural world and the geometric themes which underlie them.
The five images on the north side use Euclidean geometry to construct egg-shaped forms using only a compass. The five polychrome images to the south are overlaid on these geometric constructions using a technique akin to Hermann Rorschach’s famous psychoanalytic ‘ink blot’ test.
