Colour 3D

I am fascinated by the way colour transforms physical objects.

Medieval and renaissance sculptures were often painted to make figures more life-like, but I use colour to detach 3D objects from reality and turn them into ‘islands of imagination’. Some years ago, an environmental charity asked me to paint life-sized sculptures of a crocodile and two baby elephants, so I turned them into characters with dream-like stories. Exploring the relationship between physical objects and colour has become a key part of my work.
