Art Description

Painting: Enamel, Acrylic, Spray Paint on Bronze, Wood, Steel.

‘Refractor Paintings (#1-4)’ are a group of ‘Refractor Paintings’ which I made and exhibited in Mexico in 2016/7.

Using the language of minimalism and its associated economy of form and material, I create these simple yet complex, colourful abstract paintings from industrial materials. I work with plywood panels and enamel acrylic spray paints. The four works are all inlayed with colored bronze rods and then mounted in a fabricated steel frames.

For these works, I only use over the counter, industrial spray paints. I have chosen to work with a limited palette, using a commercial range of colors that create a striking, glossy finish. I like that people can buy these paints over the counter. I also like that this accessible range of colors is familiar to us and forms part of our day to day urban experience.
