Colour and geometry

I use screen printing as my main medium because I love colour and colour relationships. Flat, even areas of colour are what screen printing gives you. Even "mistakes" look beautiful! Overlapping coloured shapes produce a third colour dependent on the transparency of the inks. 

For me, geometry is all about movement and rhythm. Diagonal lines add movement, circles or arcs, rotational energy. I search for a dynamic and satisfying image that brings together colour and geometry in a compelling composition. I'm interested in the idea that what works for me may also translate to other people: that a certain combination of abstract elements looks good to many different people and that we share an understanding or feeling about a work. Having said that, art takes on a life of its own and viewers may see things within a work that the artist was never aware of or intended: that's cool too.
