Physical description
Tapestry hanging executed in multi-colours with a bold abstract pattern representing a uniform configuration, based on artist Roger Kemp's 'Evolving forms' paintings 1960-1965, which the artist designed a cartoon for this work. There are 2.5 warp threads per centimetre, and eleven weft threads to the bobbin. The wool is dyed with Ciba Geigy dyes in the workshop, and the tapestry was woven using the high-warp method (i.e. tapestry grew vertically).
