About The Artwork

The royal shimmer of gold leaf, so often used in medieval art, inspired me when creating this diptych. Both Woman and its partner piece, entitled Man, were created together so that there would be a sense of unity between the two pieces of art work. I found mixing the translucent watercolours with the opaque gouache were an exciting contrast that brought a sense of depth and richness. By leaving the meaning and symbolism of this diptych open, I hope that the viewer can bring their own personal interpretations and experiences to the art and can connect with the piece in a more personal way. I wanted to continue the patterns and shapes across the two pictures so that they look eye catching alone but play off each other as the viewer's eyes carry over from one piece to another. As if they are two similar pieces, separated by a small distance. Man and Woman are original artworks signed by the artist, professionally mounted, framed and are ready to hang, the measurements include the artwork in its frame. They will be lovingly wrapped and boxed up before being shipped to their new home.

The order and perfection of geometry captured me from the moment my father put a compass in my hand, at the age of 4. Geometry often appears in my art and for me, it can be a symbol of order, structure and rules. To juxtapose fragments of perfectly formed geometry beside intuitive mark making, abstract swirls of colour or photo layered images and drawings fills me with a sense of satisfaction as it somehow mirrors our lives - a multiplicity of seemingly random events that may have some order beneath. Often, my artwork has a deeper symbolic narrative that allows it to almost be read and understood on a variety of levels. Certain geometric shapes and designs can be seen to have symbolic meaning in Islamic art, I sometimes use this to build in a deeper layer of symbolism into my work. Having lived the first part of my life in the diverse island of Trinidad, in the caribbean, I am drawn to vivid colours and textures, perhaps somehow harking back to the colours of carnival. Yet my personal studies into Islamic, Euclidean and non Euclidean geometry have opened up a world of psychological and spiritual symbology that has allowed me to explore bigger themes such as order and chaos; predetermination and freedom; intuition and reason.
