About my artwork
My work is concerned about the issues of space, colour and abstraction. I use the urban environment as a vehicle to explore this. In regards to townscapes, i find i interesting that a person can be enclosed yet in an expansive area. Interlinking buildings and complex geometry create a warped sense of perspective, allowing the viewer to experience a sense of vertigo and confusion. I create this disorder through the use of layering, experimenting with a variation of scale within the painting, and the juxtoposition of organic and geometric imagery. The colour i use in my paintings match the artificiality of the urban environment. Heavy contrasts and bold colours enhance the idea of disrupted perceptions, whilst hinting at an apocolyptic feeling. My work remains un-populated, creating a sense of emptiness and isolation. I hope this causes a sense of unease forcing the viewer to contemplate their own spatial awareness, putting themselves within the painting exploring the possibilities within the elements of each layer, which results in the viewer attempting to deconstruct or re-arrainge the composition in order to make sense of it. It is in this way I strive to control the viewer, as each painting contains a path, or rather, a way in, and a link to the first layer that leads towards the confusion of the interlinking top layers. The idea of being controlled or manipulated creates another level of uneasiness.

Hi Lauren, thanks for the friend request :)

Your paintings have a really interesting dynamic, at first glance! I am in a rush so I've just peeked at the slideshow above but I'll take another look later :)

Hi Lauren,
I really like your work! The use of colour in your paintings gives them real depth and I love the architectual aspect. Are your photographs double exposed or are they worked with paints? Try looking at Conor Harrinton's work. It's sort of similar to your's, but he uses grafitti.
Take care,
Bob.
