Bob Law believed he would be able to convey his relationship with the natural world more accurately by eliminating all representation from his work.

This drawing derives from Law’s early ‘field’ drawings which he began to produce in 1959. These were made while, or immediately after, the artist lay in fields, prompted by what he has described as mystical moments of ecstasy. They are an attempt to communicate the spiritual dimension of Law’s experience of direct contact with nature and the environment.
