The beauty and simplicity of a wooden wedge sent to me by curator Sophie Loss inspired this work; along with a similar small wedge I’d seen the day before under the door in John Latham’s Flat Time House. Time triggered my thoughts back to Archimedes’ wedges and forward to the 20th-century geometric abstraction of Lygia Clark’s sculptural Cocoons, both underpinning the three-dimensional work.
