Curves; my latest body of work, is an expression of energy and movement. Thick layers of textural colour draw attention to the painting’s surface and physicality, contributing to the overall movement and dynamism. Opposing curves are carved into the thick upper layers of paint to reveal underlying colour, form and texture within the work.
Each unique piece from the ‘Storm’ series is composed of directional gestural strokes, multiple transparent layers, and opposing curves visualising the elements unleashed by Tāwhirimātea (God of weather).
Angry that he had not been consulted when his brothers separated his parents Ranganui & Papatūānuku to let light into the world, he showed his frustration as a storm.
Note: The frame shown is made in a virtual setting to give an example of what the print could look like framed.
