Artist who shared an exhibition of new paintings with Rolf Brandt at Lisson Gallery in 1969, in the catalogue of which he explored the implications of hanging a canvas diamond-wise instead of in conventional rectangular mode.

Other exhibitions included John Moores Liverpool Exhibition, 1965; Soundings 3, Signals, 1966; Edinburgh Open 100, 1967; 25 Camden Artists, Camden Festival, and a solo show, The Dreams of Euclid, Lisson Gallery, 1968; and Four-colour theorem, environmental project at Kenwood, 1969.
