In the last two decades of his life painting took particular focus within Martin's oeuvre, and the Chance, Order, Change series dominated much of this output.  This long series of drawings, paintings and prints evolved from early studies begun in 1969, and followed a complicated procedure by which the artist would mark a drawing with a point, moving clockwise round a rectangle.  Further lines would then be generated by taking numbers (from one to twenty-five), two at a time, at random from a bag.  The artist then chose eight pairs of numbers for the works, instigating the change-element of the title by turning through 90 degrees and repeating the process before transferring to the canvas.  As Andrew Forge notes:

"With all these works there is a double invitation: to explore the drawings as statements about an inventive process; and to combine the produces that are generated by that process.  The paintings represent such products; they occur when a configuration having particular force and vitality is set aside from the process and given a richer embodiment" (Andrew Forge, Kenneth Martin, Ex. Cat., 18th April – 17th June 1979, Yale Centre for British Art, New Haven, p.52).
