This Riso print is part of my Yellow Series, exhibited at The Peckham Pelican in February 2020. I used simple geometric shapes in strict grid systems to create figures that push against their confined spaces and evoke physical sensations of touch. The universality of those feelings was essential to me, and by creating the compositions predominantly from perfect circles I aimed to avoid race, sexuality and gender indicators.

I achieved the sunny yellow of the figures by printing a light layer of Pumpkin Orange underneath the Riso Yellow, which adds a warmth that is distinctive to my bright colour palette.
