Sweeping seas of colour, abstract shapes and repeating patterns reminiscent of giant Matisse ‘cut-outs’, Jack Killick is interested in the illusion of feeling dwarfed when in the presence of sculpture. Seemingly absentminded doodles become sculptural forms that consume a space and camouflage its physical boundaries.

Graduating from the RA Schools in 2016, the design world also taken note of Killick’s distinctive aesthetic, with a recent installation in The Conran Shop window in Marylebone High Street as a response to the Royal Academy’s Abstract Expressionism exhibition.
