playful illusions of light and shadow

Exhibition statement

My artwork explores how light and shadow generate illusions and ambiguities of perception by obscuring or revealing objects. My work reveals these ambiguities and invites the viewer to have a direct experience through participation.

I have produced art which explores the beauty of the abstractedness of nature. My objects and images are based on real forms, but are represented in such a way they become abstract.

These ideas were explored using light and shadow through transparent and opaque materials, and processes using illumination, reflection, refraction and projection. I explored repeated shapes in nature, fractal patterns and illusions and also touched on perceptual reversal. These were explored to reveal the ambiguity we perceive in nature.

Through extensive experimentation, I developed my ideas to produce a number of interactive sculptures, installations and photographs which produce illusions and ambiguities.
