Rory Watson takes an image and through an economy of form, questions how much is required to convey the subject and activate the imagination, whilst challenging a vulnerability in a theatre of colour blindness.

Operating in the space between figuration and abstraction, licks of oil paint and threads of colour energetically combine, only to appear frozen in a calm stillness. Tranquility juxtaposes anxiety as the canvas becomes an open door, each brush stroke an impulsive recording of humanity and self discovery.

Since graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2019, Rory became one of the 2020 resident artists at The Muse Gallery, and has exhibited across London. He now works from his studio in Hackney and is a current resident with Art Inspirations and Aspirations (AIA).
