This painting, with its prominent white bands edged with crayon, is characteristic of Ian Scott’s early Lattice works. Michael Dunn has noted, ‘By placing colour between and behind the white bands he created an effect that evoked the trellis fencing often found in suburban gardens. This association, while unrelated to the formal nature of his works, is one that the artist is happy with because it reflects the suburban scene in which he works.’
