ARTIST STATEMENT

The Lights and Shadows Series  
Fluid, lucid acts of Chance with considered interaction create infinite spaces. 

An Antidote to the overwhelming modern environment.

 “The Lights” series aim to expand space, to provide portals to places within the viewer and outside everyday concerns and information fatigue. 

As used by many cultures to represent Hope, Spirituality and the combating of Darkness, only white pigments have been used.

The Shadows Series series plays on opposition and the elements of Light and Dark, physical and philosophical. They present as improbably tiny, heavy masses. 

Darkly representative of WW2 cannon placement ruins and sinking battleships. The “Shadows” invite the viewer to interact deeply on a very intimate scale

While the works evoke a fragility of tenuous connections they aim to trigger a Poetic quality of heightened experience.
