Galerie Jamileh Weber, Zurich Private Collection, Switzerland (acquired from the above) Thence by descent to the present owner
"Horizontals are the eternal horizon, where we see the edge of our own local world. Verticals are assertive, like us standing. There are a lot of references to figures and nature in my work, so naturally it has a psychological aspect to it, where the assertive and the affirmative human action come into contact with the permanent.” Sean Scully

Under close inspection there is evidence of scattered, light wear along the edges and at the corners of the canvases. The surface texture is inherent to the artist’s working method.
