LIGHTMOTIF

Light is the inspiration and subject matter of my new practice. For many years I have explored the themes and variations of slices of 3D digital scans of bodies and objects. In their latest incarnation this base material is transformed into translucent and luminescent shapes that “float” on a surface, beautiful, elegant and transcendent. The shapes are reminiscent of satellite images of cities at night, or aquatic life, or microscopic biological structures of the cells of plants or bones. They imply a space that is both vast and exterior or intimate and interior, in the mind. The colour is varied in its combinations, while the works are meditative, mesmerising and intriguing. Lightmotif combines new technology, both digital and analogue, and the age-old artistic tools of colour, line and of course, light.
