A BODY OF BLUE

This collection of work is an investigation into the colour blue, the vessel, and the parallels between them.

Blue is the colour of our eyes, the sea and the sky; of infinite space yet immense depth. My particular interest lies in the luminous qualities and paradox of ultramarine – symbolic of the royal and the heavenly but also the devilish and the obscene. I have explored this in conjunction with the bodily presence of a vessel, using each drawing to find a sense of space, a sense of ownership.

My process allows me to find glowing light and blue depth. It is obsessive and rhythmic: many wax crayons weave together these ideas, holding them closely in the flat surface of a piece of paper.
