“Every country has a Mona Lisa. When I think of the US... it has to be Grant Wood's American Gothic.”


Noun: Using word / colour association to create text within art.

"Using Psycolourgy allows the greatest expression of my personality. My thoughts, memories and opinions, influenced by my current social, emotional and geographical experiences, bleed into the work as each colour conjures its name. At the time of this work’s conception, I happened to be in the 2020 lockdown, with additional family members, fairly isolated, on the West Coast of Scotland.
My piece presents a subtle palette of subdued natural colours. Peaceful at first glance, much like the source artwork, but upon closer investigation, the text reveals some uneasy associations." - Nick Smith
