"I see my paintings as experiments, explorations into how colours and forms can create the feeling of light, depth, layering and movement. The concepts for my work come from my interest in Op Art, Geometric Patterns and Colour Theory. Ideas and curiosities that arise from my previous paintings also inspire my practice.

I design the composition for my work using drawing software. Having studied Graphic Design at University, using software is a natural and accurate way to achieve and refine my ideas. I then meticulously draw my design onto the canvas.

My practice is very systematic. I premix and refine all my paint colours; this allows me to study how the colours work together before painting. I achieve the crisp, precise edges - which are crucial to my style of work - by careful masking with tape. The finish needs to be as flawless as possible to prevent distraction from the composition and colours. I like my paintings to be intriguing and disconcerting, encouraging the viewer to pause to decipher them." - Victoria Mardon, 2022
