7, 8, 9, 10 (2015)

7,8,9,10 presents four large-scale paintings that explore the classical subject matter of ‘The Four Seasons’: summer, winter, autumn and spring. The paintings combine an eclectic mix of references from art historical movements and natural phenomena to chaos systems and glitch art. In these combinations, the form and rhythm of the marks are directed through different moments in time and history, allowing multiple explorations of form, landscape and season, and the various moods that arise from them. Each painting spans 3-metres in length and is rendered in high detail. Tension is created in the complex arrangements of vectorised and near-typographic patterns that dissolve into painterly washes. Compositional dialogue between interior spaces and the natural environment echo the conversation between our internal, psychological and emotional realms, and the external world.
