His work derives from an intensity of colours exploding onto aluminium surfaces. Within the work a language screams dialogue that expresses the artists' innovative analysis of Contemporary Art. Using state-of-the-art materials including pearlescent, xyrallic and candy paints; the paints are applied using commercial spray guns within a 30ft x 15ft low bake oven and throughout the process the work is lacquered and polished for a sumptuous finish.
Hatton has developed an intricate understanding of the materials he works with; thus realising its creative potential beyond industrial use. His extensive knowledge and skill with high-tech commercial paints allows him to create abstract works with colours and a surface never before seen. Using extreme high pressures to apply the paint onto aluminium surfaces, the results are an attempt to control the chaotic, an alarming analogy of his life. Concluding in a finish so sublime that combined with the sheer scale of the work, it creates an illusion of space beyond the realm of imagination.
