Kim Raftopulos shows a range of abstract approaches here in these archival prints. The paintwork creates a variety of effects, from the subtle silvered layering of "Grey on Pink Abstract", which plays with ideas of covering up and obliterating past gestures, to "Boomslang" which verges on stick - figure figuration evoking archaic cave painted forms. Gestures at times echo the square of the support but this is contrasted by a spiralling, scrawling gestural vocabulary which is less premeditated and more child-like, reminiscent of Jean Dubuffet's "Art Brut". The large black forms create weird gestalts alluding to primal figure/ground relationships.
