Colour Parallax Series

“Colour Parallax” is a series which uses vividly coloured hard edge quadrilateral shapes on neutral ground to explore asymmetrical composition and relational colour perception.

“Pigment Projection”

45″X 36″

acrylic on canvas

$2550

“Pigment Projection” depicts light colours which regressively transition to dark as they recedes into the pictorial plane of the canvas. On the upper, hues advance from left (yellow) to right (black) illustrating a lateral progression. On the lower, a slightly askew hot red subsides into the canvas.

“Metamorphic Green”

30″X 24″

acrylic on canvas

$1125

The fiery upper right sloping quadrilateral indicates a bearing of heat and shifting weight upon a bed of yellow and blue culminating in a “Metamorphic Green”.

“Capillary”

20″X 16″

acrylic on canvas

$500

“Capillary” is a bisected image that juxtaposes the liveliness of red with the dead of blue.

“Thermal Ingress”

20″X 16″

acrylic on canvas

SOLD

“Thermal Ingress” refers to the intense yellows transference of warmth to the red and blue.

“Arctic Drift”

20″X 16″

acrylic on canvas

$500

“Arctic Drift” is a cool blue hard edged graphic depicting a weighty charcoal mass, representing the hull of a ship, buoyed up by a light iceberg afloat in arctic waters. The elevated grey at the upper right indicates an advancing fog or inclement weather ahead.

“Incursion”

20″X 16″

acrylic on canvas

$500

“Incursion” refers to the two toned band’s intrusion into the colour field of brown.

“The Breakfast Table”

20″X 16″

acrylic on canvas

$500

With this image, I’ve used slight offsets and fine lines of separation to break the flatness of the composition, give it an extradimentional effect.

“Thermal Egress”

20″X 16″

acrylic on canvas

$500

“Thermal Egress” indicates the degradational effects of cold.

“Primary Interference”

20″X 16″

acrylic on canvas

$500

This composition illustrates basic colour theory with a twist. Subtle aberrations in hue selection aim to intensify colour juxtapositions, while shape distortions and an asymmetrical arrangement impart transitory qualities to an otherwise static image.

“Tabs”

20″X 16″

acrylic on canvas

$500

This open composition has been extended by edge wrapping the interrupting bands of colour.

“Deviations”

20″X 16″

acrylic on canvas

$500

This work uses offsets in an attempt to maintain balance.

“Adieu”

30″X 24″

acrylic on canvas

$1125

“Adieu” depicts the divergent translational movements of three adjoined rectangles.

“Embolden”

30″X 24″

acrylic on canvas

$1125

“Embolden” Is a reflection on the synergy of Josef Albers’ relational colour investigations.

“Shift”

36”X 30”

acrylic on canvas

$1700

Directionality is established by pointing staggered repetitive sloped quadrilaterals towards a void.

“Colour Parallax No.1”

36″X 30″

acrylic on canvas

$1700

“Colour Parallax No.1” is a complicated array of deeply intense blends of reds, blues, purples, browns, and dark greys which suggest the feeling of warm shadows. The fun of this work is in deciphering its inherent compositional architecture.

“Colour Parallax No.2”

36″X 30″

acrylic on canvas

$1700

“Colour Parallax No.2” is a dynamic analogous colour arrangement with a twist. At face value, the overlaps and blending appear natural; however, the mixed colours don’t directly correlate with their adjoining hues. The illusion is supported by plausible tonal relationships.

“Colour Parallax No.3”

30″X 24″

acrylic on canvas

$1125

“Colour Parallax No.3” is a luminous composition punctuated by unusual colour amalgamations and complimentary visual distortions. I find this picture both intriguing and unsettling.

“Colour Parallax No.4”

30″X 24″

acrylic on canvas

$1125

“Colour Parallax No.4” is an asymmetrical gradational interplay of overlapping patches of colour. The directional flow is from dark too light.

“Colour Parallax No.5”

20″X 16″

acrylic on canvas

$500

The “Colour Parallax” series of works use rectangular forms to asymmetrically juxtapose aberrant colour amalgamations. The aim here is to explore the visual affects and effects of relational colour perception.

“Basking Plane”

42″X 33.5″

acrylic on canvas

SOLD

“Basking Plane” is a simplified expression of light reflecting off a surface. It addresses phenomena such as hot spots, colour distortions, and light gradients.

“Amendable Colours”

36″X 30″

acrylic on canvas

$1700

The title “Amendable Colours” refers to the subtle imagery of a open flag atop its staff. The shift of colours, and paint sheen from left to right suggests a change in position and light exposure.
