A series of highly visual abstract digital designs by contemporary artist Simon Cooper.
"Colour is the secret key to my work. I have always been preoccupied by the language of colours. They have fascinated me, particularly computer binary colours. Using colour, line, shape, space, and composition, I am able to create unity and harmony in my work and to convey meaning and mood. Identifying colour relationships, different white textured papers or canvas are used to evoke emotional response.
I use my eyes more than my ears because of my deafness. I observe colour more vigilantly. A computer allows me to expand the restrictions of traditional creative techniques. Speed drastically alters our perception, and has pushed modern technology to extremes proclaiming a new aesthetic. Translating digital binary from computer to paper/canvas fills me with a sense of accomplishment and integrity and has proven a wonderful way of experimentation."
Simon Cooper qualified in Fine Art at South East Essex College. He regularly exhibits some of his striking designs in shows in London and the South East. This range of abstract designs is printed onto a canvas and stretched over a chunky box frame.
