Pop Poster Collages 1961-1963

Paper on board.

Influenced by building site hoardings seen in Milan in 1961, particularly in relation to structure and scale.

” I started selecting colour, and to some extent, subject matter……however there was always the overriding influence of abstract values which I had to return to, in most collages it was the vertical construction, or geometrical in some form.”
