Base. Accent. Overlay.
“True Colours’ is a collection of paintings that form a colour story. The palette weaves its way through these paintings – faded cyan, warm dirty pinks, ochre, burnt orange and umber.
This body of work tells the story of familiar settings – real and imagined, indoors and landscapes, charged with an atmospheric energy that is intended to engage, resonate and add a sense of nostalgia and familiarity.
My work dances the line between loosely figurative and lightly abstracted, but essentially I consider myself a colourist. Colour guides my every painting and I thrill in the endless combinations. The juxtaposition of certain hues that make a piece sing, the overlay of pigment on pigment that creates atmosphere, the dash of an unexpected highlight that throws out energy – I am constantly searching these out.
Revel in the colour! I hope that it brings joy.”
