Dunsyre: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1977

26.7 x, 2pp. A photographic card with three images taken from Livingston Development Corporation of newly painted housing gable ends (the houses had just been built) and a Finlay public artwork on walls in the Scottish new town (a version of the concrete poem WAVE). The stripes on the wall reminded Finlay of the Dazzle camouflage used during the Battle of the Atlantic: the longest continuous military campaign of World War II which ran from 1939 to 1945. The WAVE work here clearly symbolising the sea and the two zig-zag paintings representing the British boats with their Wadsworth inspired hard edged paintings together is a visual metaphor for the sea battles between the British fleet, their defensive escorts and the German U-boats and battle ships.
