Ink Works

In my abstract works I aim to create an overall sensation for the viewer, whether it be by scale, distortion, or immersion.  I combine organic, free-flowing paint with the interference of detailed pattern added by hand. These approaches create various senses of movement and time, resulting in weaving confusion between foreground and background.  In my ink based paintings the organic quality of the medium is connected to the biological source imagery of my work, each flowing in and around details added throughout my process. These qualities of my work are intended to evoke a shared experience and show the importance of visual aspects on mental states.

Growing

4ft x 5ft - March 2016 - Ink, Watercolour, Paper

The scale of the page in Growing (2015) creates a sense of wild overgrowth; the viewer is surrounded by layers of vegetation, ink splatters, and patterns.
