Drawing from previous explorations into colour, perspective, optical and light phenomena this new suite of works presented for Spring1883 continued my investigations into light and space. These carefully planned works involve delicately arranged layers of glass panels inlaid in transparent acrylic and silk organza, backlit with warm light inside thick, bold aluminium borders. Reminiscent of kaleidoscopic imagery, stained glass windows, light, shadows and atmospheric phenomena, the works reveal the shifting and unstable nature of perception through visual disorientation.

This series explored dichotomies between interior and exterior spaces, intimate and shared environments and the visible vs the invisible. Ethereal and spiritual in essence, each work articulates the sensation of looking through a window, via backlit layers of overlapping glass textures.
