Project summary:

I am a visual artist working in North Wales making paintings and prints, the work is mainly associated with the flatness of paper and canvas, there is a developing interest in the sculptural forms of these disciplines. The focus of the work is to produce art that has a visual engagement for the human eye, everyone has “memes” which influence our perception and trigger a personal connection with our own cultural appreciation, prompting a like or dislike for an object or experience, these memes determine the visual artworks I make.

Current themes evident in the work investigates the simplicity and duplicity of line, the balance and unity of symmetry, colour and spatial aesthetics promptinga manipulation of image using moiré distortion, interference pattern and spatial index. Although the complexity of these subjects could infer science and mathematical research the interest remains in the visual perception of an artist eye.

“I like my art to play with our visual senses, to challenge our experience of looking, to help the viewer question what they see in a piece of art.”

The AA2A placement will allow me to investigate the flatness of printed artworks which engage the realms of 3 dimensional aesthetics.
