Jazz and Chaos 2017

Life has been full on lately and I’m expressing this in my abstracts. Chaotic and intense, I explored layers in these works with collage, painting and drawing. I’ve been playing with the flux of shapes and colours to create energy in the piece and move the eye back and forth through the positive and negative space.

There is a quality in these pieces that feel like jazz to me. The space in the work allows the different elements to bounce off each other. A fat bass line responding to a light, sharp snare. A delicate line scoring across a slather of paint. Short burst of expression playing with the detritus and excitement of life.

Its about embracing the out of control and confusion and finding a beauty in that.
