Light, love, darkness

This series draws on a thread of disquiet, disharmony, foreboding. A gown: ascending, graceful, peaceful, beautiful, sparkling in the surface light, drawing her up: but at the same time descending, floating momentarily above the ominous darkness, the haunting depths drawing her down. Through these works I explore themes we see in everyday life: love, loss, light, pain, beauty, darkness, mystery and the unknown. The works confront the question of why something so beautiful floats so fragile against the darkness. You can only truly see light, against the dark.
