About The Artwork

Within a perfect square I've arranged the values from one to twentfour proportioned as rectangles within a grid of six columns. Prime numbers are realised in various colours. Non-primes, unmarked, provide the remaining structure of the design. The value one, the sole divider of all the primes, is rendered black. The structure and proportions of this work remind me of Mondrian's paintings, hence the title. On the other hand I can't resist using texture and a totally un-mondrian colour palette within my work. This work sits firmly within my facination with exploring the visual patterning potential of the prime number series.

Born 1953 in the UK. Paul Ashwell produces striking abstract paintings and prints. Inspired by repeated journeys, geology, music and numbers, his background as a skilled printmaker also influences his work. Much of his work is created by superimposing layers - using plaster, tissue, newsprint and paint to bring out or obscure previous layers. He often uses gloss and matt to give different appearances in different light and from different angles. Paul's facination with number and pattern is a reoccuring theme. His Prime Marks is a good example of this.
