An Aesthete in Dayglo

December 23, 2010

Rarely in my work have I been interested with colour until very recently. Traditionally I have been preoccupied with the monochromatic notions of line, tone, texture, form, proportion, accuracy and other such terms when regarding the human form.

When presented with an exhibition brief where the dominant issue was colour, colour & more colour! I was presented with a fascinating challenge.

In April 2010 I took part in a collaborative exhibition with fellow artist and good friend Robert Walker entitled ‘The day the world turned Dayglo’, check out the interview piece by Ziggy Nixon: http://ziggynixon.blogspot.com/2010/05/seize-dayglo_16.html

In hindsight I can actually see that my use of acrylic colour was actually the ‘missing link’ and has rapidly evolved the notions previously associated with monochrome techniques and media. In fact my painting is simply drawing but with colour and brush.
