Taking time to look forward, look beyond, look into… Creating a connection of control and order, a shield from the chaos lurking beneath.
My work has attempted to tackle the unpredictable journey of life and all we endure through our ventures. Lines and grids provide boundaries, barriers, stops and starts whilst quietly portraying patience, an order, a hope, that we all have the power to ‘pull it back’ from time to time. An optical confrontation between the imaginary expanse and the tangible truth.
In order to create this work I took it through a series of processes. An initial screen print was created using yellow, green, blue, red and black acrylic paint which has provided an abstract base for my work. Tape was adhered to create an optical confrontation between the imagery expanse and the truth, whilst a careful consideration of colour has also been applied – for its power of response.
