‘Attraction/Repulsion’ is a new set of small scale work deliberately created with the Artists’ intention of looking at forces within science from a creative perspective.
A Painters’ practice should be about creating a visual language, a way of new description and investigation, of explanation and understanding. An Artist has set himself this challenge by accepting this way of life; only through immersion in the subject matter do new possibilities develop.
An interest in natural forces has led to the creation of this work, from magnetic dynamics to cellular lifecycles or coastal movement to viral attacks, the possibilities seemed endless.
“Although this is new work that has been naturally evolving from previous pieces the future seems boundless. Having challenged myself by scale and shape, size seems like the next exciting step for future pieces”.
