With new Moves on the Gym Rings by adjusting the equipment, after Charlie Free Runner’s visit, new avenues to explore have arrived.  Also working with clay will present new happenings as well.

There is an abstraction of emotion based on fantasy.  Although the emotion is real, so perhaps it arrives in a field of fantasy.  Ready for play, abstraction and movement. Mirroring one to the other; internal & external, reality & fantasy, emotion & Movement. They intermingle in the space, surfaces meet & paint marks the moment.  Random & controlled, reflection & chance, dance & fitness, strength & grace.  Pairings, revealing a story, an energy exchange, connections forged in time.

A & B respond to each other within the painting.  In Pairings 1 they become separate pieces of work and the response is within and parallel.

Making Playful Connections floor tiles in the studio.  They were imprinted using Movement with the Gym Rings and then painted using my feet in rubber socks to keep the toxic slips from touching the skin. Then fired twice and glazed in between firings.

The colours were chosen based on the emotions connected to characters in a story, describing the characters and their emotional response one to the other, A to B & B to A.
