I created this series of prints inspired by 70s wallpaper. The use of geometric forms that create patters has interested me as a pathway to an experience both transcendental and emotive. The series, Systems, hovers between minimalism, abstraction, geometry, stasis and dynamism, while its visual energy of sensuous, buoyant hues makes an instant impact with a vivid sense of spatial illusion. Why the 70s? Because without them, I wouldn’t be here playing with colours.
