"Comment on England (1935) is an essay by Geoffrey Grigson first published in the first issue of Axis[1]. The essay features an early use of the term biomorphism.

"Abstractions are of two kinds, geometric, the abstractions which lead to the inevitable death ; and biomorphic. The biomorphic abstractions are the beginning of the next central phase in the progress of art. They exist between Mondrian and Dali, between idea and emotion, between matter and mind, matter and life."
