Thierry B Sangeyong Series
So much of abstract art can be traced and talked about in terms of intention. The use of repetition in mark making, draws the viewer into the picture plane. It may be seen as metaphor for making his mark upon the world on a physical scale. Lyrical and delicate imagery, these fluid shapes transform spaces they inhabit. Hypnotic and healing, the Sangeyong Series have been widely collected and photographed in private collections across Australia.
With art we travel. What leads us to search out meaning for the walls of our inner harbours and our exterior retreats? What combination of space, surface and colour lead us to a feeling of extended openness, of belonging to our surroundings, of expansion of space and the glimmer of inexplicable lightness.
As we travel through architectural spaces, designed places - the search for the spontaneous and the desirable, and at times the spiritual, can often be mirrored in how we choose to demarcate our ideologies of place.
Thierry B explains the art of zen; "My work is all about introducing the joy of colour into our lives, often seen here through cross-sections which challenge your spatial perception. The vibrancy of hue and curvilinear forms in repetition create a dynamic feast for the eye, where they are in constant motion. Energy maps a pathway for our eyes and hearts to meld." - Thierry B, July 2015.
