Vibrant geometric paintings by Hugh Byrne

The first thing that strikes you when you see these paintings is the bright contrasting colours, form and how they interact with the surrounding space. Hugh Byrne operates out of his studio in Cape Town, South Africa where he finds himself influenced mostly by the city. The paintings are created by combining multiple layers of household enamels, resins and other mediums.

By adding layer upon layer he is able to build up a surface, which is highly reflective and tactile. The colours I choose are a personal choice and are not done at random. I feel like these colours have some relevant meaning in my life and perhaps relate to some emotional memory that I hold in my subconscious.
