Described as ‘anatomical light sculpture’, the series celebrates form and invites a sense of journey.
The story is about energy, how it is generated, transferred and transformed.

Imagery begins with light illusions emerging from the waters of Lane Cove River creating ethereal forms from gradations of light and shade on the water surface. The images evolve by shrouding and peeling-open face and figure to reveal the visceral nature within. Bodies come into sight both by becoming forms and being taken apart. 

Like sculpting from a block of rock, the technique is a process of deduction. Silver blue halos on ripples of the surface simplify light to create form. The idea of journey, as not always something pretty but going somewhere, is evident in the actuality of the creations.

With my experience grounded in science and sculpture, there is a sense of seeing the art and science in the energy of natural form. The symbolism asks questions by inviting a range of responses intended to still the viewer long enough to look twice. The work illustrates ‘the art of science’ as a totally different reality construct.
