Paints landing

My work investigates the formal concerns, problems, patterns and puzzles of painting on different surfaces. The work has focused on the surfaces that capture the transparency and fluidity of paint, exploring elements of colour and space. I investigated the influence of the background and foreground that surrounds the picture frame as an element that adds to the depth of a painting.

By positioning the painted surfaces in non-traditional ways, boundaries between 2D and 3D forms are blurred in a way that explores the space between the image, reality and abstraction. I have tried to work with ways in which my paintings capture light, suggest movement and harness the emotional qualities of colour.
