Phil Atrill

Horizon Curve.
This new body of work takes elements of the previous two series – ‘how light changes in different weather conditions’ and the ‘building-up of layers of light through clouds or sunsets’. The new work combines these elements and moves the interaction of the forms a stage further. The strong graduation of colour enhances the fluid forms and the interaction between the pieces.
