Gemma Smith is one of my favourite artists. Her paintings are made up of geometric colourful ‘shards’, giving a sense of perspective and depth. She also makes multi-sided perspex sculptures she calls ‘boulders’. Her new works (Tangle paintings) are much more painterly and use organic shapes. I love her use of colour and the way she uses both geometric and organic shapes.
My latest painting uses geometric shapes again. I based the composition on a random arrangement of cut-out shapes then added new layers with transparent paint. Next I think I’ll add some drippy sections as a contrast.
