Duncan Gaman Artist Bio:

My paintings explore the abstraction of both figurative and non-figurative forms into large colour-field paintings. I look to create compositions that have an affinity with colour and mood, but also have an aspect of instability between the forms, visually and emotionally. The compositions are created so that strong flashes of juxtaposed colour unfold with flowing movement, as the various shapes interact, creating an overall harmony. Aside from painting, I have specialised in digital light and sound installations. Primarily focussing on the notions of obsession and repetition, I continued with these themes whilst studying animation. The notion of repetition has always interested me as an artist, and process behind doing the same thing again, and again, and again. Whilst, each time viewing it in a different way and with an alternative perspective. My most recent painted works have explored a more figurative theme; specifically portraiture. The focus of my works is not only on the body, but also its relationship with its surrounding landscape. I still put the use of colour in my figurative paintings at the forefront of the work, the aim is to abstract the composition as much as I can; but still to keep the figures relationship with its environment a representational one.
