Coco’s paintings look at the different ways in which colours interact to create visual sensations. Gestural brush marks and areas of the canvas where previous layers of colour are preserved are combined to create a colour that the viewer experiences optically as a new one. She explores the boundaries within the practice of painting in terms of the space between figuration and abstraction, movement and stillness, depth and superficial flatness as the colours within the painting fade between hues. The subtle colour shifts are the only thing maintaining the hazy delineation between forms, all of which diffuse into each other to create an ambiguous space.
