I was making my Revolver / oxidised series around 2008, and had slipped into the habit of writing Rev Ox on my notes as I worked on the piece. So when I came to follow it up, with a new study that would take on the blues and coppers of that Revolver piece, it seemed serendipitously inevitable that the new piece should be called ReVOX, especially as the name contains an allusion to the idea of re using a particular voice to create a new study. That was the thinking anyway. The drawing loosens up on the original Revolver series, and generates a study that is more fluid, incorporates glazes and transparencies, but still retains an off kilter rotational symmetry that I hope creates some intrigue. No doubt this piece presaged the laser cut circular and toroid pieces, which continue to explore ideas surrounding these Euclidean primitives, and the energy they can embody.
