THE TOXIC SERIES

 

The Toxic Series is a body of paintings made with coloured tape and resin on large plexiglass (Perspex) panels. They focus on the often ironic beauty of pollution in our modern world: A sunset made more vibrant because of the haze and smog; the drama and provocative movement of an oil spill. 

 

'Despite the static and hard nature of the materials I was focused on the flow of the imaginary forms and how I could paint organically, softly. I pushed the colours’ movement and function, not only with their relationship to each other but how the forms separate and split apart. Thus reflecting nature’s own relationship with man; a widening division.'
