oriiro

IRO-ORI (Japanese) means colour-fold (farbenfalt in German), and is the title of a news series of paintings by Matthew Gardiner. The works are inspired by the idea of seeing colour as a folding across surfaces, and folded surfaces as they play on light and colour. The works explore the simplest folding patterns, and draw from narratives within daily life, unfolded and crafted in acrylic, and composed on the textured surface of machined plywood.

folding coloured light
mountains valley pierce the night
sunlight prisms bright

greyness of the morn
