Hampshire, UK-based artist and designer Dominic Joyce creates paintings and prints that play with the viewer’s sense of depth and light using a limited number of colours, mostly white, grey and black. Occasionally, pinks and blues. Blocks, squares and trapeziums appear again and again, generating a sense of strict order and consistency.
This geometric and abstract style is influenced by both visual art and architecture – Pete Mondrian, Ettore Sottsass and the Memphis Group, Henri Matisse, Rothko, Ellsworth Kelly, Le Corbusier, Mies Van der Rohe and J G Ballard are some of the figures the artist admires.
Dominic graduated from Portsmouth University in 1999 with a degree in Art, Design and Media. He is the creator of IKEA’s ‘Knarsta‘ print sold through IKEA worldwide.
He is currently having a long-term display of original paintings at 1000 Lakeside, North Harbour in Portsmouth.
