Kew Jungle Abstract

Kew Jungle Abstract

A soft, pale mint-green ground provides a beautiful backdrop for a pair of semi-circular paint strokes in hues of yellow ochre, ultramarine blue, phthalo green, primary magenta and titanium white. The strokes capture the paint mid-flow, creating endlessly fascinating variations in texture and pattern within the paint. This painting captures a carefree spontaneity, which is balanced by the mellow peach-blush background, creating an energising yet calming atmosphere.

This painting is inspired by the tropical hot houses at Kew Gardens, London. The fresh, vibrant colours and free, joyous paint-strokes capture the beauty and energy of the plants the hot houses contain. This painting is part of a series which explores the materiality of paint, its properties, movement and the ways colours combine. This series is also an exploration of colour. It aims to explore and exploit the mood-altering properties of colour, using them to enhance people’s emotional state, sense of well-being and atmosphere within a space through careful choice and balancing of colours and simple shapes.
