Richard Caldicott is focusing on pure form and colour, the British artist composes works in an almost notational, rhythmic way. His current series marks a departure from modernist serenity towards a focus on dynamism and force, compositions that mimic the forces of explosions and fractures. Caldicott composes his imagery in a painstaking way, cutting and assembling paper in the physical realm before standing back and assessing, then clicking the shutter. There are further stages: the bringing together of two compositions in a single frame to create the densely layered structures, and then finally the proofing stage as a means of enhancing and trimming, fine-tuning the image before it is printed at scale.
