Paul Moncrieff's ongoing research into the New York school of minimalism is apparent in his exploration of simple geometric panels assembled according to predetermined rules of proportion. The strong fields of vibrant colour enhance and solidify these relationships .

Following his retirement as Senior Lecturer, Coordinator of Painting at the School of Contemporary Arts, Edith Cowan University, Mount Lawley, WA, Paul is now fully engaged in his art practice working from his home and studio in the Great Southern of Western Australia.
