Chromatic Flux Wax Prints
As an artist, I am fascinated by the impact of colour on our perception of the world. In my 2015 series of printmaking works, I sought to explore the abstract qualities of colour through texture and form. I used a range of techniques, including bending and scratching the lino and dripping wax onto cardboard dot-by-dot to create varied surface textures.
Through these techniques, I aimed to convey the emotional and physical impact of colour on our perception. I found that bright colours produce an afterimage, and a visual vibration can be caused by two bright colours arranged side by side. I also discovered that interjecting bright colours with pastel or dark shades can decrease this effect.
Through my printmaking works, I aimed to convey the fluid nature of our thoughts and emotions. I used the wax dripping technique to build up surface textures, reflecting the constantly shifting nature of our internal experiences.
My printmaking works aim to convey the powerful impact of colour on our perception of the world, and the fluid and ever-changing nature of our internal experiences.
"Chromatic Flux" incorporates both the idea of colour and movement or change, reflecting the fluid nature of our thoughts and emotions that you aimed to convey through your artwork.
