Cumulus Analysis, 1986-87 by Pat Brassington
The collected images in ‘Cumulus analysis’ recall the effect of dread. When the senses, especially touch and sight, are heightened by anxiety apparently simple images can become nightmarish. A witty and evocative dialogue takes place in ‘Cumulus analysis’ between images of sight and blindness, those of water and air, fish and human form. Encapsulated within a minimalist grid, which imposes order, the work in actuality enhances the tangential and the emotional.
