Sax Impey has described the process of making his paintings as a synthesis of mapping or charting the territory of his thoughts, never knowing exactly where he will end up. During the past six years he has been interested in lottery data, sub-nuclear physics and the decay of sub-atomic particles, aerial reconnaissance charts, medieval maps, mathematics, and interpretative strategies. His paintings have often presented an image concealed within an image, as if he preferred not to embrace an austere interpretation of mathematical data and instead, chose to frame it within an imaginative and mysterious non-place.
