Bryan Lavelle


Bryan’s work is an investigation into the properties of his chosen materials and the process of painting. Some of the processes used within his work are; use of poly-chromatic colour, repetition of form, harnessing of uncontrollable factors such as gravity, the unpredictable characteristics of paint and use of post-modern materials.

Through his choice of materials and the use of gravity to ultimately make the mark he is able to make abstract paintings that become self referential, questioning only themselves as artworks. Through subverting the viewer’s attention in this way, from seeking narrative that may not necessarily be there; the only conceivable narrative within his work becomes the materials and the process itself.
