In the work of Piers Veness there are three major considerations: line, colour and surface.
Hard-edged forms with clearly defined shapes tread the line between abstraction and
representation - the forms are what they are, but at the same time, they can evoke something
else. He is fascinated by the possibilities and interactions between colours and their tones, and
black always features heavily. In terms of surface, his paintings are haptic: the trace of the
brushstroke or a palette knife on the paintings draws attention to the materiality of the paint itself.

Veness received an MA with distinction in Theatre Design at the Slade School of Fine Art, London,
and a first-class BA in Fine Art and Drama at University College Northampton.

He is a founding member of Square Art Projects an independent artist-run initiative
which presents contemporary art exhibitions on an international level.
