Colour Complex

Colour Complex is an ongoing experimental project based on my obsession with fibre, colour and optical illusion. It was sparked off with the creation of the Rainbow Room in 2012, and resulted in a solo exhibition in 2016 and works featured at various group exhibitions. The collection includes elements of textile, fibre, print and acrylic, and employs both traditional and experimental fine art and craft techniques.
