A second set of paintings for "A Wonder World for Enid". The paintings are set in broad borders of delicate watercolour paper.
Using acrylics, I create layers of intense colour through arbitrary juxtapositions. Fluorescent pinks and orange heighten affect/effects on their neighbouring hues. Tones and textures of greys on top of the colour layer work as a kind of ‘inverse sculpting’ by excluding and veiling.
The bright shapes underneath and among the grey suggest the rich lives of people with dementia that are gradually obliterated, but remain accessible longer than we think.
