STATEMENT
This Ink Drawing uses an economy of means at opposite poles to the complication which we often see in Maxwell's work, but the basic vocabulary is, as usual, point, line, plane (shape) clearly differentiated, clearly graphic and clearly "allusion" in contradistinction to "illusion".

Maxwell thinks of himself as visual poet; "figure" is a poem in ink and paper.
