I am a Wellington-based painter. This is my first solo exhibition and includes two recent series of large-scale work – the Hound series and the Rally series.
The rhythmic colour studies that make up both series aim to capture a sweet spot between tension and release.
I am drawn to process and exploring how colour, light and form interact. Equally important to my life and practice is following my intuition; being playful and inquisitive.
I see abstraction as a representation of emotional states. I am interested in capturing the ebb and flow of a person’s inner life. What cannot be articulated, like in these paintings the experience of grief and settling into new states of being in the world.
