Art Collection: Winter of Colour
This collection originated from a happy (or unhappy) accident. In January 2018, I had before me the daunting task of finishing the script for my upcoming television series - Apperro. As any writer will attest, writing can be an especially dispiriting job. With the weather gloomy and unforgiving, the winter cold biting and depressing, I was having a difficult time with the script. I wanted an escape. Anything but writing. So, it was in those gloomy late January freezing moments that I started messing around with colours. Initially, it was a form of doodling. I was just mixing colours and drawing shapes until something appeared. Before long, I had done three pieces. Then four, five, and so on and so forth. The more desperate to return to my unfinished script I became, the more colours I mixed and doodled. I remember, at one point, going for fourteen uninterrupted hours of creating shapes and colours. In the days that followed, I tried doing both simultaneously - write and paint, and it worked. By the time I spelt 'credits' on the script, I had 26 pieces that celebrate the wonder and fascination of colour. Please note, the gallery contains very small images (for speed of the website) - I will let you know when large images or the canvases will be available for you to really appreciate the depth and range of the colours.
