Reinventing the wheel is a phrase that means a generally accepted technique or solution is ignored in favour of a locally invented solution. To "reinvent the wheel" is to duplicate a basic method that has long since been accepted and even taken for granted.

Rather than providing viewers simply with a known landscape (see the centre of the canvas) I have instead have tried to build up the material anew, leaving the viewer to work out the reasoning.
