About the artist
In Jamie’s practice, he is interested in the relativity of colour as visual perception and subjective experience shaped by cultural preferences and interpretations. In the summary of his research, colour exists in a transitional space between our subjective perception and the objective world. The experience of colour thus is never a fixed entity because each individual has his or her own memory and perspectives in their relationship to colour; while at the same time, colour in the objective world is always fluctuating depending on internal and external physical conditions.

Colour can appear as a source that registers accordingly and encompasses differences; therefore one’s own sense of colour is the result when these experiences merge. In Jamie’s works, he investigates colour as a sensation – a physical stimuli, a phantom-like force and an aspect of interaction that one can have with painting. He wants to demonstrate that our colour vision is not always stable; direct experience of a colour can sometimes become ‘indirect’ and its transparency is not always so much ‘transparent’. By exploring colour as sensation, Jamie uses it as a vehicle to provoke self-awareness of how colour may not be as simple as it seems to be.
