About this artwork
A single experiment of black, white, black resulted in a striking monochrome multiplication that grew, evolved and ultimately, took over. Inspired by Op Art’s fascinating black and white illusionary patterns and retro design.
This work is fitted with D rings and wire for immediate hanging. The panel has a hidden wooden framework which allows the work to ‘float’ a few cms (one inch) from the wall. On the back you will find my signature, initials, title and year. It is registered on the NRAA (National Registry for Australian artists) .The work comes with details of the registration and a Certificate of Authenticity.
THE CIRCLES COLLECTION
A fascination for circles and a love of retro design led to this collection of works that combine the fun and the funky with colourful pops of colour and pattern. These upbeat paintings are filled with an eye catching proliferation of this most friendly of shapes.
I paint on surfaces which allow for the subsequent removal of the paint when dry. It is a slow process of squeezing paint into circles, with each layer taking up to a week to dry. Hundreds are needed in their dried state before being layered and glued onto their support. An individual work in progress resembles an assembly line and takes up an inordinate amount of paint.
