Richard Caldicott is a master craftsman of the deceivingly simple. His remarkable body of work over the last two decades has engaged in the infinite variations of elementary arithmetical forms. Everything is in proportional relationship, whether it is the space defined by the limits of the paper or the transparency, colour proximity and relativity, volume, contour, point and line. Like music it flows from a limited spectrum of signs playing with the unlimited. His work stands between on one hand a synthesis of hundred years of concrete art and on the other the wonder of a future made of boundless new fluctuations.
