Origins is a series of paintings investigating the physicality of paint as object and furthermore how it can be used to create the impression of form and movement without the means of a traditional perspective space. The works are created by using large volumes of paint and are primarily shaped by the force of gravity. Within each work are variations caused by the amount and type of paint used. This exhibition charts the process over a two year period.
