Chroma shape 2021-22

The Chroma Shape and ‘Light Shift’ series references both Modernist abstraction and representational languages. Illusory horizons are explored through gradient colour shifts, form and light. This inquiry into colour and illusory space set’s up a colour conversation within my paintings, informed by colour signatures observed within the natural world, atmospheric colour and the physics of colour. The physicality and materiality of colour within these paintings contrast complimentary colour with a fluorescent after glow, suggesting a transitory space between form, horizontality and spatial landscapes. Repetition of form and totemic shapes play with 2D and 3D illusions of shape and form above and beyond the horizon line.
