Literature & references:

Bernard Smith, Australian Painting, OUP, 1962, see plate 180, for ‘As it was in the beginning’ - a 1960 painting of slightly smaller scale, previously in the Aubrey Gibson Collection, and p 312 for the following:
“Laycock developed a rhythmical linear and part-accidentalist style, building his pictures into richly textured masses of colour, in a desire to create pictorial analogies for the dispersion of energy and the creation of matter. He was, if not the first, certainly one of the first among local artists to develop a coherent personal style from the abstract expressionist mode of invention.”
