Product story

While Basil Beattie is best known for his abstract paintings featuring architectural motifs, often including stairs, ladders and tunnels, his works on paper have formed an important part of his practice throughout his illustrious career. Psychological and physical complexity abound in the deceptively simple visual language used by Beattie to explore certain preoccupations, such as the passing of time and notions of the journey.


This is one of a number of monochromatic drawings in Beattie’s Above and Below series in which he uses geometric shapes and lines to create graphic images of seemingly endless variation.
