Artist statement about the exhibition:
''When I say the word 'light', I tend to think of it as one thing; not dark. But when I look and take in the world through painting, I see there are so many types of light, and with each different type of light there is a different context and a different mood. I'm sure film and theatre lighting designers have a deep knowledge of just how much lighting can effect a narrative.
To watch and be immersed in the changing light that is part of the subtle shifts of our changing seasons, is something to wonder at. Sometimes, to affirm that I really understand these differences when it's deep winter, I try and conjure up the feel, smell and sensations of spring. In order to do that it probably starts with the light. These paintings are that watching and absorbing a time and a place.''
