Unpredictable and complex – like a poem made of colour
My technique uses ink, fluid acrylics and alcohol on yupo paper, plastic and aluminium substrates. It’s a bit like chromatography – each pigment is made up of many different colours, which all combine and dry in unique ways.The final images are scanned at high resolution and enlarged up to ten times their original size to reveal crisp detail, silky textures and fascinating micro-worlds.
Pigment, alcohol, and a little serendipity
When I paint like this, there are no rules. What I love about this process is that you have to make decisions without knowing how it’s going to turn out. There’s a lot of trial and error. But handing over control to the molecules on the page in front of you is liberating, surprising, delightful… it’s pure meditation!
