About this project

The piece ‘Pointillist’ is inspired by childhood memories of impressionist and post-impressionist paintings. The excitement of looking at the multi-coloured surfaces of original paintings by Seurat, Vuillard and Bonnard has stayed with me and continues to inform my work. The recurrence of dots and dabs of colour across the entire surface of each canvas mobilises the viewer’s gaze. I want to stimulate this active process of looking through my own work.
