My paintings are concerned with the struggle to fit a gesture within the boundaries of the surface; considering the close ratios of brush to the board and how each limits the potential of the other. Tension is created on the surface through the colour variation of the brush mark and its resulting negative space. The monochrome stacks allowed me to investigate the subtle differences in colour and texture. This contrast of colour and finish integrates ideas of minimalism and industrial-made objects with man-made gestures.
I use studies on paper to help materialize ideas. Blending of colours and playing with translucency has been a new interest, since departing from my paintings and moving to screen printing. The triangle is a far more complex shape than it first appears, this factor intrigues me and presented me with a starting point for my screen prints to develop. I enjoy playing with proportions and compositions. The simple shift of the triangle illuminates the two colours used to create the main mass colour. Stripping back the process of screen printing integrates my interests of minimalism and colour study. Like a step by step guide to mixing colour. 2 + 2 = 4
