One of the BP Spotlight Displays at Tate Britain is dedicated to the work of Marcom Hughes, David Saunders and Jeffrey Steele, the founders of the Systems Group in 1972. Member artists focused on precision and mathematical principles in the creation of their art. These are my favorites from the display.
