ON NOW – New Works

An exhibition of painting and installation

Join me for my solo exhibition of new works created during my residency at Gray’s Wharf in September and October 2020, and of key works from the last 12 months.

On show at Gray’s Wharf Gallery from Tuesday 13th – Sunday 18th October 2020

My 2020 solo show is an exploration of my abstract painting into installation, an amplification of the experience of colours, layers and planes of the painting surface into three dimensionality and enhances the vibrance, brilliance and clarity of colour.

With the aim of using my residency at Gray’s Wharf to push the boundaries of my practice, I have used the space to stretch out and expand in size and concept. Through use of the light and airy space awarded by Gray’s to me, I have been given mental space, time, physical space and opportunity for reflection and deep focus.

Together with the team at Gray’s Wharf, we would like to invite you to visit, experience and be surrounded by new works produced during the residency, along with a few other key pieces from the last year which have been produced exploring the same key themes of luminosity, material, process, composition, technique and colour.

My new paintings explore a range of painting surfaces including natural canvas, acrylic and wood, at times creating three dimensional installation pieces which bring close focus to the material of the paint and the canvas as being ‘as one’.

Through the exploration of the properties and abilities of paints to their most clear and luminescent ability, by using fluorescents, pastels and clean, pure colours, I aim to feel uplifted by the paintings and to share that energising impact of colour with the viewer. The paintings seem to glow and emit light bringing the colour to its highest light emission, in parts casting light out and off the canvas, bringing the focus on colour both into the painting plane itself yet also to its’ surroundings, and also showing the ability of paint with material (particularly in relation to pieces made from acrylic) to itself create light.

The ‘canvas’ both interacts with the paint as a layer itself, and provides the physical layer on which the paint can sit and perform to a great degree. By seeing surface textures through sheer veils of paint or heavy elevations in the paint application, we are reminded of the process of painting and the physicality.

By bringing the paint layers out from the ‘canvas’ we are able to experience two dimensions in a three dimensional way, in opposition to enclosing the three dimensions into a two dimensional illusion. We feel and we experience the energy that has been given by the artist to the piece through the process of painting which brings the painting into reality and this is reflected back at us.

About my paintings

My paintings use fields of colour, transparencies and opacities that act as both a visual and an actual layer over one another, and which are layers upon the surface layer of the canvas.
