This bold, colourful painting was inspired by the natural phenomenon of solar flares, observed as flashes of brightness against the sun's surface.
The sun has been painted as a discreet area of intense colour and pattern, with aspects flaring up into negative white space. I wanted to explore contrasts of mark-making intensity, and the idea of the sun as a hot and intensely coloured mass with solar flares shooting up from it's surface.
