Original Works

Kinetic

This body of work is calligraphic in nature, with each exacting stroke of colour activating the silence of the blank canvas. With these interacting elements, the eye is guided through the painting in a search to both connect with, and decode, the image. These repetitious elements create visual illustrations of natural forces, such as gravity and inertia and form a work of kinetic art.

Many works in this series are made up of multiple canvases, and serve as a way of further increasing the dynamic relationships within this body of work. These paintings function by way of a physical interplay with one and other; each is a direct metamorphosis of the other. The paintings flow “to and fro” like an animated abstract GIF.
