Notes:Made in 1962, the last year of Harry Thubron's time at Leeds College of Art, this piece reflects something of his teaching methods - a celebration and encouragement of spontaneity and inventive exploration of ideas such as line and space, positive and negative, and experimental use of different materials. It is typical of his interest and enthusiasm for assemblage, and the potential for an expressive tension between two and three-dimensional form.
