House, Gordon (1932-2004), 'Tri (Grey)', Acrylic on Canvas, 1970s

'Tri (Grey)', Acrylic on Canvas, 1970s


House painted a series of nine tri paintings in the 1970s, all of which work with the same tri format and various combinations of the triangle, semi circle and arc.

These paintings relate to his 1973 series of etchings (cat.81-93), 1975 series of woodcuts (cat.95-102) and 1975 series of screenprints (cat.104-112): together they 'represent an ongoing number of variations on a decorative scheme, the basis of which is an equation on the simple grid of area divided as an imposed printer's metal chase or Gothic leaded window idea'.
