Rainbow: Under Construction, 2020
Rainbow: Under Construction is concerned with bringing a physical representation to human energy. Alongside this representation, the work navigates the relationship between painting and time, specifically through the juncture between traceable definitive marks and the space created through layering. Evoking joy and whimsy in its colour palette, the frozen chaos presented aims to transport the viewer and bring a new attention to their own feelings of bliss and time.
