Dots No22

'Dots 22' abstract painting by Nicki MacRae

Dots is a vibrant and varied series of abstract paintings exploring the relationship between transparency and opacity, and plays with the idea of ‘spy holes’. It plays with colour, simulated and physical texture and makes intensive use of spray paints and stencilling. It’s roots are in my love of collecting ‘many alike’ objects into complex arrangements.

It is the culmination of several years of practice and experimentation with spray paints, and their combination with more traditional fine art paints and techniques.
