A series of eight geometric colour compositions inspired by semi-precious stones. Each composition appears as a carefully put together puzzle of pigments, each edge straight and contrasted with the next fraction. There is a playful dynamic created by various size fragments, and one can easily imagine a continuous everlasting dance outside the white edges of the arrangement.
Whenever together or individually, despite the gleaming configuration of triangles, each piece hopes to bring and centre the same ideas on endurance, stability and permanence as the stones they emulate.
As gems represent the ability to be grounded and connected with the earth, so are these illustrations presenting as strong, versatile and easily accessible.
