Craig-Martin is one of the key figures in the first generation of British conceptual artists, and this commission marks a new departure into the realm of portraiture for him. Although the
linear portrait is fixed, the colours are controlled by computer software that makes constantly randomised choices. The work slowly changes over time in infinite combinations.
