About:

Stimulated by the concept of colour interaction, my installations explore the dialogue that is created between the painted surface and the colour illuminations when colour changing sequences are projected on top of the canvases. By combining abstract painting with colour changing projection it allows me to see the direct affect that digital light has on painted colour, and how changing the hues of this light can create immersive colour transformations. My gestural paintings are photographed, digitalised and then projected back onto the original canvas. This second layer depicts an animated colour sequence that illuminates the painted colours, creating a sense of movement across the space. These installations encourage a detailed observation due to the changing colour sequences. This highlights the meticulous details of the interactions formed through layering; which can be seen stood close to the canvas. However, this style of work also favours the audience viewing the entirety of the space. While the wide-span projection bleeds off the canvas it fills the room with changing hues. The employment of 3 projection paintings working simultaneously together ensures that the space is filled with a range of hues that directly complement and contrast each other. My aim is for the viewer to enter the space and feel completely submerged in colour.

Acrylic paint on canvas, projection. 233.69 x 190.5cm This triptych exemplifies my concept of the interaction between physical colour and digital colour. By combining abstract, gestural painting with projected imagery it allows the eye to experience how changes in light can transform painted colours. Installed in a gallery setting I displayed the colour changing projection bleeding over the sides of the canvas in order for it to fill the entirety of the space with the colour transformations, this process is then photographed and filmed. The theme 'Partnership can unlock growth' is key for my practice. Combining two mediums; painting and digital projection, unlocked a massive growth in my studies enabling me to reach for further abstracted limits and see the potential that colours have for interaction when they are combined in these two mediums.
