About the artwork - Untitled 2019 

Playing with patterns, shapes and repetition, the artwork is an anchor to the unlimited potential of structures and shapes in our world. The organisation and balance arises from experimenting with the building blocks of basic forms, and creates order out of chaos. We’re drawn into this striking, well balanced artwork that is a playful contrast to the surrounding environment.
