Although at first appearing as a sculpted relief whose shapes have been carved from the surface, the curves and lines of this work have actually been formed from within.
The UK based artist Bryan Lavelle, pours thick layers of enamel paint onto handmade MDF frames. After the paint has bound to the surface, the works are left in a vertical position to dry. During the drying process, gravity slowly pulls the viscous enamel to the base of each divide within the MDF frame to form bulbous, rolling curves.
Once set, Bryan's work echoes the gentle curving lines, absence of the 'artist's hand' and simplified forms of the 20th Century Zero artists, such as Agostino Bonalumi and Piero Manzoni.
With an MA in Fine Art & Painting from Winchester school, Bryan Lavelle utilises post-modern materials, repetition of form and poly-chromatic colour to create abstract paintings.
