The artist wrote (1 January 1965, dated in error 1964): ‘“Knuckle” evolved after my work had become less to do with actual physical joints between the various elements (joints capable of movement) and more of a way of expressing a type of energy. In other words to join disparate forms and spaces by a kind of heart or core of movement. Also to make these forms as simple and stripped as possible.’
