My work is in relation to 1960’s optical art and geometric abstraction; perception, stimulation, and illusion are created through pattern, shapes and colour theory. These works are used as a way produce psychological experiences and responses and communicate visual phenomena. These experiences may include hallucinations, vibrations, dizziness, disorientation, headache and vertigo. Thus, creating an interaction between the viewer and the piece itself. In my work specifically, I enjoy creating haziness, “flickers” and vibrations by using colours that have a high contrast with one another, whether that being in brightness of the colour, or by using complimentary colours.
