dc.description.abstractThis visual arts research project explores colour and composition as both the mediums and the subjects of painting. In particular it explores possibilities for colour to deictically question its own values, and for composition to ask questions of the rhetoric as they arise form the shifting relations of paint and support, and in interaction with historically established perspectives on colour value (aesthetic conventions) and of composition as a means of recidivism. The approach taken is to mediate between the playful and the formal, an approach that aims to avoid simply proposing either an anti-aesthetic, or another heirarchic system of colour usage and/or structural values. Instead the project aims to celebrate and extend an experience of colour and composition. The project remains open to multiple modes/codes of painting, including the figurative and the abstract, the systematic and the improvised.en_NZ
