Abstract (English)

The text by curator Elving, identifies archetypal shapes in MacWilliams' abstract paintings, and in the process through which these emblematic forms are manipulated to create a resolved composition: a journey of discovery directed by the intuitive and unconscious side of the artist. Reproductions of preliminary line drawings as well as works in the exhibition are included. Artist's statement. Biographical notes.
