Created in 2014, this piece is from my Ibiza series. I’d visited my friends in Ibiza and was inspired by the incredible and positive energy of the place. When I mediated I found that I was able to tap into a bubble of energy, and I started to feel more powerful and self-assured in myself. Colour became my means of capturing and communicating my emotions and a state of being. The detail that was prevalent in my original doodle art began to be replaced by the use of colour instead.
Man in Red represents my confident self, full of bold happy colour, and coming to terms with himself. Feeling more self-assured in standing out from the crowd the bold use of colour is a celebration of that idea. The placement of the eye, the distorted nose and the flick of the hair gives this man a surrealist feel, but look close and you will note a sense of familiarity in his form.
