The British artist William Gear was introduced to the CoBrA group through the artist Stephen Gilbert whose work is shown nearby. He often assigned titles to his works in retrospect, viewing them as useful tools that ‘can sometimes set the tone of a work of art or give a lead to the spectator’. Here, thick intersecting lines seem to grow across the sheet, suggesting organic forms.
