Here is a typographic work by Maurice Redmond for the artist Colin Smith.


The first of a series of 3 artworks. The title font Macula is based on the ‘impossible’ Penrose triangle (or Penrose tribar). Each 12cm high letter was cut from 4 mm thick plywood and individually suspended by a wire from a 2 meter wooden frame, then the typography was positioned and adjusted by hand and judged by eye. I have further explored this theme of beauty, being a result of imperfection and random unintended detail with the artwork for Part 2 and Part 3.
