I produced this series of work for an exhibition at Pop up Edinburgh, Dundas Street. The exhibition title ‘Currents’ referred as much to the ‘currents’ of colour running through the work as to the sense of natural rhythm and dynamism explored within it.
It also suggests the idea of the process of painting being something that brings you into the present or '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 the idea of disrupting a painting frame I had looked at with my angled board pieces through continuing my paintings onto frames and exposing stretcher bars. Stylistic devices of intensely built up colour, collage and cut outs also featured in these works.
