John creates colourful, multi-layered abstract paintings adding structure through the use of a repeated selection of motifs. Glimpses of underlying marks are revealed to hint at hidden depths and time passed. Being on the autism spectrum gives John a heightened experience of colour. Whether the marks are energetic or still, each piece creates a space for a meditative moment. His work provokes questions of how colour affects us.
