The definition of the word colour is described in the oxford dictionary as “the property possessed by an object of producing different sensations on the eye as a result of the way it reflects or emits light.”
For as long as I can remember, I have been absolutely enamoured by colours. I adore the spectrum of hues, the tints and shades of each and the vibrancy, as well as intensity, they can possess. After years of careful editing and much experimentation, my attraction to colour has blossomed into a style I’ve titled, Chaos Of Colour.
These artworks, inspired by the world around me, are based on the colours found in urban landscapes, cultural objects, and nature. Each canvas or wood panel support is layered with poured, splattered, pushed, scrubbed and brushed mixtures of acrylic paint. The assortments of hues are then brought into motion by gravity and water, one at a time. These chaotic backdrops set the stage for the inspired imagery that is placed on one of the top layers of each piece.
My artworks are intended to illustrate a connection between the emotional and the physical, chaos and structure, colour and form.
