The Squaring of the Circle – 2011


Becky Bolton & Louise Chappell’s practice explores the sensual abundance of contemporary life and the attempts to limit and restrain complexity through systems and structures. Drawing on motifs developed through a collaborative method of automatic drawing their installations are a celebration of the visual profusion of everyday experience. Borrowing form from swirling galaxies, pyramids, molecular shapes, fractals, helixes and complex geometric formations they have created The Squaring of the Circle – a series of 12 mandalas and a floor-based painting installation.
