My exhibition is over.
It was so sad taking it down. It looked so perfect displayed together in that beautiful bright white box with loads of natural light shining in.
It wasn’t just me who thought so. I can report that the exhibition was really well received. There were five whole pages of comments in the visitor book and they were all so lovely I’ve photographed them and am sharing them here.
There are three paintings that need returning having been brought back to me on loan, two more need sending to their new forever homes.
I’m now looking for a venue that might like to display the remaining collection –
three glass sculptures and twelve acrylic paintings. …
“Out of the Darkness, Comes the Light”
When I began this body of work in 2014 it was as a result of the awe and emotion evoked when I looked out at the huge expanse of the dark night sky from my home in rural Mid Wales. There were so many more points of light and smudges in that darkness than I had ever seen before, having previously lived inner city. I would look up, with wonder at the prospect of the infinite new beginnings and endings; the energy that must be existing, living, dying and flowing beyond beyond.
Then I started looking at images taken from space telescopes and felt a spiritual connection to all that light and energy exploding out of the darkness. These energetic outpourings millions/billions of years ago still shine bright today; still impact on the here and now. For every action, no matter how large or small has an impact. A smile, a frown, a wave, which road we take, which path we walk. Everything makes a difference.
They say that something as a small as the flutter of a butterfly wing may ultimately cause a typhoon halfway around the world…
Also, all items are available for sale, if anyone is interested. (I need to sell a few more to make space for the next collection. )
