‘Ancient Light’ is a painting of many layers. The experiments I’ve taken to find this composition reveal lines, shapes and brush strokes partially exposed through the plaster. These experiments, or risks, not only influenced the journey taken to create this piece, they will influence the next work I produce as my processes evolve and the story of this collection grows.
There was a strong sense of being led by my intuition when I created this piece. I’ve known the light in this painting and I aim to leave this open to interpretation, where your memories, imagination and experiences can start the story you see here.
There is a lot of texture in this painting, and I used a limited palette with the aim of creating a dramatic contrast between the light and the atmospheric blues.
