My artistic practice examines the relationship people have with colour. My interest in this relationship comes from my own chronic eye condition that occasionally causes severe photophobia, leaving me in a near constant state of darkness for short periods of time. This temporary light deprivation in life has given me a deep appreciation and fascination for the role colour plays in our visual realities. I use the mediums of painting, light art, and installation art, to create a reciprocal process of inspiration from, and then investigation into, colour. My artwork is an investigation, conversation, and celebration of colour and human interaction with it. Drawing from the artwork and theories of Daniel Buren, Olafur Eliasson, Luce Irigaray, Sonia Delaunay, Anne Truitt and the artwork of the Minimalist, Abstract Expressionist, Light and Space, and Orphism movements my artwork explores the power, effect, and role of colour in our visual reality.
