Blivet, 2012, acrylic and oil on canvas, 25 x 30 cm
Mobile Transmitter, 2012, acrylic on oil on canvas, 40 x 40 cm
The paintings here were shown in Flatland an exhibition I curated at the Blyth Gallery, Imperial College in London. These are a new series of works where I have been exploring how we perceive three dimensional forms in a two dimensional space. The shapes in the paintings are taken from doodles in my sketch book, optical illusions and etchings of geometric forms which originate from the 17th Century.
Perspective of the Regular Solids Version 1, 2012, acrylic and oil on canvas, 60 x 40 cm
In my previous paintings, more often than not, the structure or object is placed in a block colour background to propose a void and also to concentrate on the form itself. A horizontal line sits beneath the structure and grounds it in a space.
Zig-Zag, 2012, acrylic and oil on canvas, 60 x 70 cm
Sound Reflector, 2012, acrylic and oil on canvas, 60 x 70 cm
In Zig-Zag and Sound Reflector, I experimented with lines and shape to suggest other spaces behind the object. Playing with the idea of the flipping between the object and ground, I wanted the object to float just above the ground.
