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. Im sure film and theatre lighting designers have a deep knowledge of the extent to which lighting can affect narrative.
To watch and be immersed in the changing light that is part of those subtle shifts in our changing seasons is a thing of wonder. Being able to conjure up the feel, smell and sensations of spring when I am in deep winter probably starts with the light. These paintings are that watching and absorbing of time and place.''
