Stephen Ormandy

 

Stephen Ormandy's
paintings and sculptures are inspired by the natural world. The foundation of
his painting is a strong design element together with a great understanding of
the nuance and potential of colour and form. He works with solid colour and
soft organic shapes which bounce off each other, creating an enduring vibrancy. His 2012 exhibition Polychromatism shows Ormandy's exploration of chroma relationships
between his sculptural forms and his paintings. There is a clear dialogue
between the different surfaces and shapes and it is evident that one informs
the other in constant play. The works
offer a wonderful sense of joie de vivre.
