“Passing Light”

Light and dark influencing two dimensional and form lies at the centre of my work.

I have over twenty years experience in stone carving, developing continuously a understanding of this natural material and its qualities, alongside the forms it can hold in permanence.

With “Passing Light” a installation in stone, I am inviting changes of natural light in response to solid mass, creating a structure that harbours events of light and shadow, ever changing throughout the year as they cascade over the carved channels and forms anchored in stone.

Geological time, human time day in day out, knowing that nothing is permanent, by drawing attention to fleeting moments is what I want to convey with this artwork.
