Kel Hinds Visual Artist

My artwork seeks its own narrative inspired by nature and the human psyche. Our ever changing environment gives way to a colourful platform like no other. The highs the lows experiences we are meant to have all become part of my subject matter. I find an ability to turn around what we know and see. Recreate it into an abstract form using multiple layers of colour suspended on top of each other. I love the uncontrolled chaos and freedom that comes whilst working in abstraction, exploring the tension between colour, light and narrative. No boundaries, no beginning and no end.

 

In turn colour becomes my visual language, from my earlier days of painting and after my University degree it is something I have always committed to. I can still hear my Tutors 'All I see is colour!' Yes that is what I do, and lucky for me I stayed true to myself.

 

This also rolls over into my glass supports, installations or resin structural work, I'm always looking for the emotive nature that can be achieved when using paint within these frameworks.
