Through large-scale abstract works, my practice explores the interaction of colour. I am drawn to boldness and vibrancy, and I study their harmonious balances and contrasts.
A key aspect within my practice is colour translucency. To alter paint opacity exposes a depth of layers, which reveals my complex painting process.
For my degree show I am designing unique, abstract – shaped murals behind my paintings to unite them with the architecture of my room.
Each mural is designed with a harmonising colour to the painting and subtly follows areas of the composition.
A trial of circular motion is the biggest painting to be featured in my show, measuring 2 meters x 2 meters. It is also my most detailed work, since the larger canvas demanded more areas of interest.
Each layer in my works are mindfully considered and planned with sketches. However, when I’m painting, I try to be as loose and free as possible to allow for confident and carefree brush marks.
Green flow and Curvic yellow will be featured in my degree show.
