Joy Anderson | Neil Wressell @ The Studio
Perspex allows me to apply paint layers to a hard surface that can then be scratched and sanded away over several days or weeks, leaving textured fragments of colour and line. Often I apply liquid ‘threads’ of paint as well as transparent fields or veils of colour. My intent is to explore the tension between these various processes, to unite their energies and seek some sense of balance between them.
I work in series of sculpture, paintings and installations to observe and explore our relationship with nature and the lack of our ability to slow the dramatic effects we have on it. The different series of works grow and develop, often from found or discarded objects that are recycled and refabricated to create artworks; these are often juxtaposed with newly carved, fabricated or painted elements. Often these works develop and change over the years with a start date but no finish date.
