New Blood Art Statement

Inspired by Hubble space photography, the paintings of Vin Førde echo the same coiling, scattered, and explosive colour of deep space. However, there is a neatness of pattern whereby complex pleats of colour collapse into each other and within these patterns a harmonic structural presence emerges - not unlike music. The paintings are best understood through the artist's methods, Førde, being synergistic, composes his paintings like he composes music, and like Vasily Kandinsky, uses abstracted forms to create melodic compositions. The swishing sounds of yellow and the shriek of red are calmed with the soothing beat of purple which swims across the surface like the stretching clouds of a supernova. The resulting imagery generates vibrant sound through the reverberation of colour and lilting composition. 

Artist Statement

I am an abstract fine artist who has developed a style of painting that combines technical devices from several artistic traditions. I use very fine needles and brushes to create intricate compositions. My artwork is informed by subjects such as quantum physics, Hubble space telegraphy, paranormal science, esoteric mysticism and Nordic art. These sources are made manifest through the complex detail that comprises my artwork. The result is dense webs of saturated calligraphic surfaces, each alike yet, simultaneously, distinct. In addition, I am also a multi-instrumentalist composer and have developed a new style of music named PSEM (Progressive Symphonic Electronica Metal). My painting and musical practices are closely linked as I am synergistic, and experience light and sound as being synonymous. I am currently studying a full time Master's degree in Fine Art at Aberystwyth University, Wales.
