Oil on canvas

Donald’s work is an exploration in the behaviour of colour. He uses the gradients between colours as a tool to uncover the characteristics of the oil paint such as translucency and viscosity, and the way some colours blend easily while others resist. Due to our evolutionary sense of perception, darker colours feel like they recede into the faraway distance, while lighter colours feel as if they move towards us; by skilfully manipulating these behaviours, Donald’s paintings express their own unique depths and spaces.
