Paul Moncrieff’s recent work focuses on non figurative formal issues. ‘T A N G E N T’, his 2010 exhibition and his latest exhibition ‘Paul Moncrieff recent works 2011 – 2012’ at Gallery East were discussed . The show was comprised of new articulated wall and floor pieces. His choice of industrial materials, use of assemblage, colour selection, shape and proportion are evident in these works. Moncrieff’s talk discussed the relationship of his work to NY minimalism, architecture, and the aesthetic of formalism.
