My paintings explore the inherently personal sensation of experiencing colours. The interplay of colours in my work explores the concept of ‘colour-constancy’ forcing you to scrutinise and to question the colours you think you see. Colour is the subject; the purity of paint used in production is paramount in attempting to mimic the physiological process of perceiving the real world. Illusory-motion is created by juxtaposing colours and adjusting the colour band thicknesses. This effects the colour-relationships highlighting research showing us that it is not only the colours used that are important, but how they are arranged also.
