Paper & Threads

The image is made up of paper and threads applied to 600 gsm watercolour paper. It is the subtle differences in texture and tone that makes up the image.

Imagery, quiet and subtle, stimulates interaction of senses, a synesthetic multimodal integration, haptic and visual plus the pulse of rhythmic harmonies. Abstract, undefined and contradictory the images rely on colourless colour, on movement that remains motionless and on form floating in undefined spatial aspects.

All the abstracts are square, referencing the machismo of the Malevich Black Square and the arrogance of his white utopian world of pure form. The delicate, feminine lace-like structures remove the assumed genius of the artist's hand and place form, pattern, repetition and confusion as the thing that has the power to transform.
