Henry Pim’s grid structures in extruded paper clay reference maps, plans or diagrams. They also suggest 3-D structures seen in the natural world and in the man-made built environment. Grids represent our attempts to measure, to define and to control how and where we live. As maps, grids describe how we understand the world. As plans, grids become speculations as to how existing knowledge can be applied to create something new. Making sense of the world is a fundamental part of human intelligence, and by extension, it is the source of all of Art practice.
