Hidden messages

Initially a series of quick paper paintings, these canvas and board works explore the contrasts between dynamic energy and stillness, through the use of colour and form. Each painting was conceived as a message to, or about, a distant lover.

The words that form the kernal of every piece are almost completely obliterated by the painting process, allowing the painting to mark a short period in time that, like every moment we live through, is irrecoverably lost to the past.
