Jaime Derringer’s paintings are all about colour, her journey through happenstance, form, structure, abstraction. To see where it takes her.
Many people would know Derringer as the founder as one of the largest design blogs in the World, Design Milk, and it is this bringing together of her design aesthetic – that is rooted in modern architecture, interior design, furniture and decor, fashion and technology – and love of abstraction and painterly process that gives her compositions a beauty and the confidence to be bold, to step into the unknown and make work that reflects a submersion into art for arts sake. Here’s what she has to say about her work:
My work is an exploration of shape and colour in its most brutal and purest forms. The repetition of shapes and lines is an exercise used to escape from everything else around me, to draw the viewer into this space. I go where the art takes me; I don’t typically plan anything. I try to embrace happy accidents, using my art as a personal lesson and take this lesson forward with me in life.
It’s wonderful to see the editor of a large design blog paint, write poetry and get involved in the physical act of making art. I wish I had the time. I don’t know how she does it. Sometime I will find the space to make. Who knows? A dream. A wish. A desire.
