Degree: BA Fine Art
University: Nottingham Trent University
Graduation Year: 2020
Through transforming and opening up the perceptual possibilities of a medium, I create abstract paintings that seek a deliberate tension between chaos and control that are rendered in acrylic paint.
By exploring painterly language that is informed by both contemporary and historic abstract painting, I create transcendent plane through layering a multitude of techniques that display my physical experience when painting. Each mark manifests into a reaction and response to another mark. Through this process, I leave the viewer attempting to reveal the beneath, behind and the beyond. I position colour in my paintings as a visual strategy that sits between abstraction and the viewer, allowing the viewer to access my painterly gestures through my carefully selected colour choices.
