“As far back as I can remember I have always had a love for linear geometrics and colour field paintings. I see the world we live in as a place full of linear-geometric constructions with enhanced colour vibrancies. My fascination for both these art forms has inspired me for many years, from great artists such as Piet Mondrian, Wassily Kandinsky, Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko. I feel that many of the works from these fine artists represent some of the most intellectually fascinating and visually stimulating geometric and colour field art ever conceived.”
Fraser loves abstract in all forms but Digital, Geometric, Hard Edge, 3D and Minimalist are what fascinates Fraser the most. Colour field plays a huge part in his experimentation and creation. Focusing on sharp lines, three dimensional shapes and multi-layered optical illusions, Fraser prepares his visions digitally, before transferring these creations to ‘one-off’ original pieces.
When creating linear-geometric abstracts, Fraser prefers acrylic paints on canvas, birch-ply and aluminium surfaces. There needs to be an edge to his work, whether that be using gradients, texture or subtleties in the colour. For geometric works that are resin coated, this extra element protects the finished pieces from moisture, heat and physical stress whilst enhancing colour and shine.
When sculpturing tactile Geo-mesh Art, Fraser hand moulds aluminium mesh that has been precision sprayed with acrylics and varnishes, creating a colour changing landscape of possibilities. The synergy when merging with geometrics, can create some stunning results!
Fraser’s goals are to conceptualise, capture and design new and enticing art that delivers a capacity to create fascination, evoke deep thought through beauty as well as engage great emotion and distill mood for the viewers.
