Shakir Mughal: Chasing Colours

SM Main Image

23rd - 27th September 2016 Artist Statement: 'Colour always inspires me, especially in random formation without structure or pattern.

When we close our eyes for whatever reason we still see the last remaining images of the last seen things for a few seconds before they disappear, most of the time in the colourless form. When our eyes are open we see reality but once we close them we briefly hold the remains of reality, the colourless impressions.

We can fill these forms up with our own colours, our own selection of texture and pattern. I have created many forms and shapes by merging different layers and patterns, adding colours and modifying shapes.'
