Literature & references:

Zara Stanhope, Fragments of a Larger System – Clive Murray-White: Sculpture 1964 – 2008, above exhibition catalogue, 2008:

“….the solidity of steel had been taken to a new level in the “block” works of the mid-1970’s. These small scale sculptures were deceptively weighty, appearing as easily cut and formed blocks but in reality comprising ground steel cut with an oxyacetylene torch. Neither denoting fully constructive nor expressive intentions, these and the larger works [of the decade] revealed how Murray-White investigated and questioned accepted ideas and challenged both art and its audiences.” unpaginated
