My project highlights the material hybrid I have created using painting and projection. This fusion of materials juxtaposes digital colours laid against physical colours, highlighting their intense reactions.
Stimulated by the concept of colour interaction, my installations explore the dialogue that is created between the painted surface and the colour illuminations when colour changing sequences are projected on top of the canvases.
By combining abstract painting with colour changing projection it allows me to see the direct affect that digital light has on painted colour, and how changing the hues of this light can create immersive colour transformations. My gestural paintings are photographed, digitalised and then projected back onto the original canvas. This second layer depicts an animated colour sequence that illuminates the painted colours, creating a sense of movement across the space.
‘Light Painting Triptych’ favours the audience viewing from the entirety of the space as the wide-span projection bleeds off the canvas it fills the room with changing hues. The employment of 3 projection paintings working simultaneously together ensures that the space is filled with a range of hues that directly complement and contrast each other. My aim is for the viewer to enter the space and feel completely submerged in colour.
