Whilst Cotterill continues to embrace disorder, in certain new works from the latest series forms are emerging from the visual cacophony. Reminiscent of ancient symbols, sculptural altarpieces and motifs from nature such as root and stem structures, these forms speak of a more centred, contemplative response to the themes of unpredictability and doubt in his practice.
