Lit-Art (embraces change)
New awareness arrives each day. Sometimes there is a 'lightbulb' moment, clear enough for me to run.
Sometimes though, these moments are drips - drip, drip, and when the bowl is full it spills out of my head forming the concept.
The result is LIT-Art, one off art pieces lit from behind with a magic home app, creating lighting moods and rhythms.
A recent holiday in Iceland and a trip into a deep tunnel created by lava the forms and textures fascinated me. Our guide switched off the blue lights, plunging us into an indescribable darkness, so dark that you felt you could reach out and take a piece. When the lights came back on they had changed to red, and I observed how all of the forms, textures and tones now appeared very different from before - DRIP.
At home, I held a painting up to the light and I noticed how the light, seen through the canvas, changed the colours in places and therefore changed the whole composition - DRIP.
Playing around with these observations and experimenting with materials and techniques LIT - ART spilled out from the - DRIP tray.
