Meditations on colour, form, mindfulness and the visual experience.

Spencer Harrison aka Spenceroni is an artist from Australia known for his bold, colourful works. Inspired by his background in science, Spencer draws from the scientific method, building his practice around a methodology of questioning, experimentation and perpetual curiosity. Connecting with modernist movements of the early 1900s, his work explores the boundaries between abstraction, representation, logic and intuition. Developing series based around core ideas but not tied to a single medium, his works venture into painting, sculpture, printmaking and public murals.

This series 'no self' is inspired by artist Spencer's mindfulness practice and is an effort to strip back to more simple forms, creating compositions with intricate relationships between form, colour and space. The works extend on the ideas of early 20th century modernist artists, who removed the figure from their work, favouring pure abstraction as their means of expression. By doing so they sought to give the viewer a completely perceptual & emotional experience, free of conceptual analysis.

Free from the constraints of representation, my aim for these pieces is for them to act as objects of contemplation; a prompt for the viewer to pause and be absorbed in a visual experience.
