“Conceptually, the rainbow is a universal symbol of hope, joy and acceptance. And, especially in these times of a pandemic, it has become a symbol of solidarity and thanks.
In terms of process, the rainbow acts as a great abstract scaffold to create composition. It allows endless possibility of form and colour combinations to create a strong piece.
This rainbow artwork is unique to the ones I have created before. I decided to finish it with a monochromatic top layer that hints at the bright colours beneath and also connects to my earlier more minimal works. From this piece I have now started a new series of monochromatic rainbows where the painting is composed from the shades of one colour."
