This is the second final piece I have created. The colours are a visual representation of the passage of time. The shapes represent the peaches, the blue and white being the shape of the peach, the black being the censor bar and the yellow to show the nectar. The abstract look of the painting reflects the glitch work I have been creating prior to this. The text is a homage to Cy Twombly’s use of text in art as well as using the ‘Your love is fading’ phrase, tying the work together.
Here are some close ups of the work:
Here are some preliminary paintings and idea for a final piece from my sketchbook. I’ve been working with blue, white, black and yellow as I believe they represent the psychical passing of time well.
I have decided to take my work in two different directions. As well as creating 4D work based on time, I have also been working on some paintings. I was brought up being told that unless you continue to paint and draw regularly, you tend to lose the skill, so after working for so long on mainly 4D work I thought making some paintings would help bring some new inspiration.
To begin with, I began looking at pictures I found aesthetically pleasing and quickly drew the conclusion that I was most attracted to emotional, abstract work as well as journals. As I find music very inspiring, most of the images came from album covers and musicians journals.
I grew up on Dream Theater and this album cover has been ingrained into my brain. I love the scrawled elements as well as the wash of white.
John Frusciante’s cover of ‘Shadows Collide With People’ shows a beautiful combination of photographic image, paint and text.
And once again, Cy Twombly’s work will inspire my own.

Final piece 2: Painting
Pink is an unusual colour in the art world. Unlike most other colours, it has had no distinct period in art history, meaning it is still rather a new phenomenon. It is neither a high nor low culture colour and stretches across many emotional and visual plateau’s. It can be seen as the colour of daintiness and purity, but also as a visceral, sexual colour. It has gone through many revolutions throughout it’s existence. Once considered a colour for baby girls, it was denied by feminists as lacking strength. Nowadays, feminists use the colour pink as a statement: femme isn’t frail.
One of the first definitive uses of the colour pink in modern culture was with the introduction of the shade ‘shocking pink’ by designer Elsa Schiaparelli. The shade had a vibrancy and a strength to it that, literally, shocked the public at the time. There had never, and still has never, been a time in culture where pink was more relevant..
As Audrey Hepburn once stated, “I believe in pink.”
