Colour as Music

Madonna Transformation 3

After a series of interim studies based off The Aldobrandini Madonna I ultimately produced this. It is fair to say that the coincidence of our project with the Bridget Riley exhibition at the National Gallery influenced my direction. I took the core colours and geometric shapes in the picture, to form the basis of preliminary studies. I used the shapes and colours to build up repetitions and movement across the image, firmly based in the original but having a life and energy of its own.
