The Ambigutree Series

While his Grandmother (Phylis Mooney) was nearing the end of her life due to a terminal illness, Vincent decided to paint a symbolic piece to commemorate his Grandmother. Using his signature skies and colour scheme he then painted thirteen trees to represent all his Grandmother's children. Surmising that red foliage would work in a visually dynamic way with a turquoise background, he began to paint. Upon leaving the piece and returning he noticed he had, subconsciously, painted the foliage in the shape of a body, clearly a representation of his grandmother.

Using this as a springboard, the idea for his hugely successful "Ambigutree" series was born. Nearly all of this series contain hidden shapes in the tree or branches. Some are symbolic and some literal. The hidden shapes in the trees also ask the viewer to search and spend time on the paintings for longer. This is a commentary on how sometimes artwork can be skimmed over and judged on just a purely visual spectrum. The reward for standing and allowing the painting to occupy your mental and physical space then gives the visual reward that there are more to these "trees" than meets the eye with the shapes becoming apparent after a time.
