Wrapped in Light, acrylic on paper, 116 x 70.5cms

The playfulness of Paul Hobbs’ abstract paintings is a visual feast of pattern, colour and movement. They start with a photograph, a snap-shot of flowers, a mooring rope reflected in water, dancing flames, or elements of Gothic architecture. From this raw material, forms are selected, projected onto paper, and their outline traced. This process is repeated two or three times. Each time he uses contrasting shapes that cut across and disrupt pre-existing boundaries. Finally he fills the remaining empty space with a rich tapestry of vibrant hues and patterns. The result is a complex surface in which the original natural forms are entwined in a dazzle camouflage of densely layered shapes and colours - a space of fluid boundaries in a state of constant flux.
