Triple 5s is a hand made painting using acrylic paints and finished with epoxy resin. The meaning of the painting is based on how we look for meaning in symbols and patterns. In this work the pattern of numbers has been defined into various ideologies and that is what interested me.

The abstract shapes have not direct relationship to the ideology associated with three fives or the symbol of overlapping the form itself. These colours and shapes developed over time and changed intuitively until they were complete, the overlapping 5s symbol was them overlayed on top of the blocks of colour.
