Mural

The Infinite Line The tight curvature of a circle relaxes as it gets bigger, its centre moving away from the arc. As that centre pushes towards infinity, the arc magically straightens out into a line.

This mural idea emerged from a series of my paintings called Flags For New Countries. These abstract artworks use colour and geometry as visual building blocks painted on circular panels. The central motif are thick colour lines that wrap the circles. The first wall (eastern elevation) of the mural from left to right, illustrates one full circle on the left and then a segment magnified to five times the size of the first circle. On the second wall (northern elevation), is an even larger segment that is just the colour bands. The image of the circle drops away and we see the close up of the bands. Looking at the mural from left to right, we have three iterations of the circle; each one magnified and sequentially larger than the next.  As you travel around the building, the circle’s centre travels towards infinity; it’s circumference becoming an infinite line.
