This work consolidates some of my research and experimentations into light and space through small-scale sculpture. Through the use of fluorescents and glass, Rise considers the physical effects of light and the interaction of colour, and reconsiders some of the large architectural and cold industrial spaces that I am usually found responding to in my installation practice. The yellow and orange textured glass creates a sensation of warmth whilst drawing from optical phenomena such as horizons, mirages and sunsets in an abstracted and industrial construction.
