About this artwork

In the 1960s and 1970s Craig-Martin was particularly interested in American Minimalism and Conceptualism. By the 1980s his work had become concerned with Pop imagery and style. A major change came immediately after Craig-Martin returned from a year’s sabbatical in New York in 1982, when he started to make wall drawings which were three-dimensional. With the inclusion of coloured panels, the result was bold relief sculptures which retainined a strong graphic element. This marked a turning point and, in 1983, Craig-Martin reduced his teaching hours to part-time and began to focus more on his own work.
