The darker works in my Fluidity series have a moody, melancholy energy- or rather, an introspective tone, which invites contemplation that can only take place when the mind is still and thoughts are unhurried. This contrasts with the apparent immediacy in which I applied the gouache, due to its inherent qualities. I've always been drawn to the idea of contrast, dichotomy and paradox. I do see a underlying trend- a recurrence of these concepts- in my work on The Paradise Project, and now the Fluidity series.
