Cape Rock - 1964

A complex web of underlying messages was now transmitted with apparent simplicity on a canvas sizeable enough to match my ambitions; a familiar rock was utilised for this purpose.

This image uses an extrovert approach to its intimate subject matter, using a distinctly phallic symbol to introduce its theme, the marine origins of male and female sexual life.

In the cottage painting the urgency of communication is indicated by the tilting of its gable. This made another crucial step in a long process of broadening my means of interpretation.

A question at all times of innovation and change is how receptive or oblivious the artist should remain to all the developments every day in the studios of the world of art outside.
