I produced this series of work for an exhibition with Hayley Whittingham called 'Currents' at Pop up Edinburgh, Dundas Street. The exhibition title referred as much to the currents of colour running through the work as to the natural ideas responded to within it. It can also suggest the idea of painting being something that brings you into the 'current' moment, making you focus on subtleties of colour, gesture and form.

With these works I continued ideas I had initiated with my degree show project. I further explored formal disruption to the painting frame I had initiated with angled board pieces and exposed stretcher bars. Stylistic devices of intensely built up colour, collage and cut outs also featured in these works.
