This painting brings together some of the key principles within the Gestalt theory, which explores the psychological effects of visual perception. By using solely a monochrome colour palette, I am stripping away any conversation between colour and shape allowing a deeper exploration of composition and technique. The offset of the painted composition, revealing an asymmetrical edge of raw canvas, creates a sense of discomfort, highlighting a psychological response to the asymmetric composition.
The boarder of raw canvas reveals imperfections from the base grid of the painting, and is also used to build a colour swatch palette that is referenced within the dominant composition. The ‘unfinished’ boarder within some of my paintings is a direct reference to print design techniques, where the crop marks, composition bleed, and colour swatches are highlighted.
