    'Gordon Baldwin: a retrospective view’, Cleveland County Museum, 1983

  • Catalogue Essay

    Like many other pieces made at this time ‘Fragment’ has many connotations despite its simplicity. The moulded form with its torn edge and partly crumpled, partly ribbed surface is like a fragment of a canvas or Ingres paper on which the viewer can project his own meaning – a window opening onto the sky? a human figure? strange triangular footprints? Though called ‘painting’ (note, not a painting), it is paradoxically, a piece that could easily be used.
