Piper has used a variety of sources for the prints including drawing, collage, photographs and sketchbooks. Some images include notes referring to texts that inspired him. Others indicate his love of and desire to record Romanesque architecture, particularly using photography. Others are rare examples of his experiments with figurative images, probably based on his wife Myfanwy.


Austin Desmond Gallery, Ascot; Mr B Sterling, circa 1985.
