Test Card TV

You can define an era by the TV. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, colour TV was fascinating. They had giant heavy screens made of glass, and you had to tune each channel by hand. I would eagerly watch the BBC test card, hypnotised by its various grey-scales and colour bars, which together appeared like an optical illusion. My paint marks in this piece are inspired by the block shapes and colours of the test card. Layers of coloured paint were applied, before being wiped away, leaving marks reminiscent of interference patterns.
