I have been working on a series of paintings that relate to the Re-Take/Re-Invent exhibition since mid January 2015. The first two paintings Island – departed and Large Yellow Painting will get destroyed as they are not resolved and cannot be saved. I will keep the book pages I made alongside these paintings and will bind them with text as part of a series of books. This project is about the creative process and the failures are as important as the paintings that find a conclusion.
...”The bad paintings have to be painted and to the artist these are more valuable than those paintings later brought before the public.”... Agnes Martin
Since then I have been working with geometric shapes, space, colour and tone. Barragán I & II are named after Luis Barragán - a Mexican architect who used colour, light and shade to create architectural spaces both inside and outside of his buildings.
