“I am slowly going ahead with the machine-organic form relationship piece. I feel that it symbolizes that inter-relationship of all nature and the material aspect of this age – the cog wheel is but an abstract section of a plant (or flower, roots of trees like pipes etc.). For the machine form I am drawing on … all the things I have absorbed in our machine age and machine exhibitions I have been visiting.” Robert Klippel1

With these comments written by Robert Klippel in London 1948 it was as though he was both taking stock and setting down a template for much of what was to follow in his later development. The interest he expressed in the inter-relationships between the structures of mechanical and organic forms – intensely observed, distilled and transformed – is as relevant to the works of the 1940s when he was on the threshold of his artistic journey, as it is to those undertaken decades later.
