The dynamics of colour is the predominant factor in Carole Hawthorne’s work and she is inspired by its infinite and limitless possibilities. Although abstract, her work is often motivated by observations of her surroundings, both natural and man-made: organised systems, strata and repetitive structures. The paintings are developed through a process of masking and layering, revealing colours and controlling their interaction. Her recent work attempts to evoke a feeling or sensation of moving through ‘our' space into another one beyond. Sometimes there is a suggestion of a barrier that both conceals and discloses this other space. Her hope is that the paintings will engage the viewer, stimulate their senses and provide a vehicle for contemplation.
