Liquid Form captures the behaviour of paint as it disperses in water; an insight into a complex, fleeting form which we rarely get a chance to see. The dynamic, moving forms become four-dimensional; dependent also on time, and can be viewed in their entirety, or their detail can be examined as small nuances and complexities, allowing to gain a new perspective on form in all aspects of the world around us.

My advice to future students...

Push yourself to explore your theme beyond just a surface level, be as out there as you want and have fun. Don’t neglect your folio either, writing in depth about the things you like and don’t like about your work will not only get you a good grade but will help develop your ideas and extend your thinking, hopefully enabling you to create better and better art.
