Woven microgauze with linen with metal rods stamped

The black and beige threads of this 2D microgauze follow both the vertical and diagonal, creating a diamond of formation. The steel rods have a structural purpose of ensuring that the artwork hangs flat. However, the natural bends and twists of the hanging give the macrogauze a sense of movement as well as direction: the warp serves as a structural feature, allowing the piece to support itself.

The 'Macro-gauze' was first created in 1964 as a response to a visit to the United States in 1963; particularly the work of Lenore Tawny; a pioneering artist who combined steel and brass with linen threadwork. This groundbreaking 'Macro-gauze' generated an ongoing oeuvre in Peter Collingwood's work, in both 2D and 3D, the compositions based around mathematical sequences and geometric patterns.
