“Jewelled alligators glittered like heraldic salamanders on the banks of the crystalline rivers. By night the illuminated man raced among the trees, his arms like golden cartwheels, his head like a spectral crown”.

(THE CRYSTAL WORLD, J.G. Ballard)


Sketches influenced by forms of Brutalism, Vorticism and Suprematism, the geometrical refractions inherent in those forms, and the imagery of illusory crystalline shards from the ‘time-leaking’ landscapes of J.G. Ballard.
