My recent work has been exploring colour in fashion and harnessing it in a framework of geometric compositions (painting, sculpture and screen printing).  By working with the limited palette of the seasonal fashion colours I am following the aesthetics of a particular time – the current season and playing with the idea of trends and taste as well as the optical effect of colour within a set composition.  Working with both a limited colour palette and a limited group of components I have my tools for creation.  By working within these set boundaries I am able to play with various ideas within a framework that sets my choices but ultimately allows me autonomy to express.  In this way I am referencing the choices that are presented to us in the fashion industry where someone else is presenting the colours and looks and our only freedom is to mix and choose from that which is presented.
