During a visit taken to Iceland images of the ever changing
weather were captured which then led onto the creation of this work. Over one
hundred shapes were digitally drawn of cloud formations, icicles, snow
blizzards, sunsets and sunrises. The naturally formed angular icicles and the
combination of soft wispy clouds complimented each other in the design process.
Taking inspiration from artist Bridget Riley and her bright
colour choices nature is not a subject that would typically come to mind when
you think of a vivid pallete. The choice of colour and shape aims to bring the outside world indoors. In doing so the way we consider our surroundings and environment is challenged. Shapes have been extracted from nature and given a contemporary twist with sharp edges and unusual colour combinations, intriguing the viewer as to the origins of the concept.
The use of layering within shape and colour in the
designs brings to light how the current climate is rapidly changing, and
evolving as time goes on. Composition of shape and colour has been thoughtfully
considered to create aesthetically pleasing outcomes, each design should
complement each other, whether that be in use of graphic form or colour.
