How the Light Gets In
These paintings are of the everyday spaces I work in, live in, or have travelled through. Nothing in them is particularly noteworthy but for a slant of light that catches the eye, a tree too abundant to take in fully, a view that repeats itself to new effect. And so, the work is really about looking about the embodied, shifting nature of perception. The framework of the window both limits and expands the view, as light momentarily dissolves the boundaries between intimacy and distance.
