Calligraphic Helices 1

Calligraphic Helices 1

This perspective arrangement of helix shapes was created using the artist’s “Ranstak” program developed in 1978-79. Drawing the same plot three times using different coloured inks so at a distance the shapes would have a greyish colour but seen up close the slightly different registration would reveal the constituent CMY colours. The helical shapes were arranged in six parallel planes viewed edge on to look like lines of calligraphy.

Giclée prints based upon a scan of the original image are now available for £100 each.
