Bloodlight Stack Series

This forms part of a larger suite of sculptural works that are concerned with exploring the interplay between painting and sculpture through the use of paper. Sheets of paper are painted and stacked in such a way that a sculptural form is created. The backs of the sheets of paper are painted a vivid red whilst their faces are painted matte black, creating a rich intensity and alluding to the complex history of these colours in Asian tradition. Like the petals of a flower, the fanning out of the leaves of paper draw the viewer in to the very centre of the work, as though working with a magnetic pull.

Bloodlight Star Series

The glow of stars and starlight within the firmament provides an inspiring backdrop and influence behind the theme of abstract mysticism explored in my Bloodlight Series.

Coloured highlights are dotted and brushed onto a blackened textural surface to create the effects of flickering light, heat and incandescence. These works demonstrate the power of a limited pallet composed of only 3 colours—red, orange and black. The said colours are used to create a glowing rich intensity that focuses on the raised central point reinforcing an interplay between painting and sculpture.
