Virginia Cuppaidge’s large scale geometric abstract paintings convey a sense of disembodied, horizontal strips of colour hovering in space. Hard edged strips of colour are mingled with soft edges. Subtle gradations, and flat stripes of pure colour come together to create a mysterious, harmonious and sensuous quality. Cuppaidge is an avowed abstractionist, however there is an intimation of the natural world in her ‘Geometrics’ series. The way that Cuppaidge balances blocks of colour, and her unusual sense of colour make her works stand out for me.
