I bring together the components of geometric abstraction, op art and minimalism to deliver work that is simplistic and non-objective in its form, but aims to disrupt the viewer’s initial perception. I use the manipulation of geometric forms as a basis for creating illusion, and am driven by the aesthetics and visual impact of forms and colours, aiming to fundamentally achieve an outcome which is visually appealing as well as challenging. Colour plays an important role and it’s impact on the forms and the manipulation of tonal values can express this illusion.
I like to use simple forms and the placement of these to challenge the physical space and invite interaction with the viewer. My aim is that they appreciate the simplicity of form, experience the visual challenge and can use their own imagination to inform their visual experience.
