Gordon House described this print as “A play of asymmetric proportion with directional rhythm related to a frieze-like pattern repeated image with adjacent reflected opposites. An idea of the registration problems within the process was exploited in the final design. This image also carries an interest in basic hand-applied stencil designs as in commercially used advertising motifs or design illustrations during the 1800s and at the turn of the century seen in such volumes as ‘A Grammar of Ornament’ by Owen Jones, the publications and work of Dr Christopher Dresser and the interior embellishments by Morris, Burges and McIntosh. In our time, painted transfers and spray stencils are used; the results can be seen on vehicles using our roads and motorways rather than those earlier domestic interiors”.
