Datganiad/Statement​

My current objective as an art practitioner is to portray the nature of light and shadow, its ephemerality and its spiritual connotations, allowing for an ontological discussion on isolation and mindfulness. This is completed through a portrayal of windows, interior space and the creation of dimension through light and shadow. To myself, areas of light convey a sense of peaceful mindfulness; in painting I have become fully aware of light and space and the momentary freedom in looking at its ephemeral luminosity stream across a window frame. Through thin washes of acrylic paint on board, I aim to capture a moment in time, a conscious experience like that of seeing a room in its last moments, before it is abandoned.
