Michael Sadler, ‘Binary II’

Michael Sadler, 'Binary II' Sadler usually works in series. Starting points for him may be generated by single words or short phrases which feed his imagination; these then become vehicles that lead to experimentation with formal pictorial elements. The ‘Binary’ series has as its starting point his layman’s interest in binary star systems. This series follows on from two previous series that were also instigated by an interest in astronomical phenomena - ‘Early One Morning’ and ‘Transit’ paintings. He has become increasingly interested in using fewer formal and compositional elements in his work in order to produce a series of closely related images.
