Renowned for his multi-layered, abstract, colourful paintings, Danny Rolph’s seemingly chaotic work often reflects the dynamism of his surroundings. He is inspired by the cities of London, New York and Rome as well as the deserts of West Texas and New Mexico, whose sunsets appear as a recurring motif in the background of his work. His colour choices are instinctive and deliberate, echoing the environment around him.The artist continually interrogates surface and spatial relations via the mediums of triplewall plastic and canvas surfaces, embracing doubt and discovery within the creative process.
