The 'Light and Shadow' series are concerned with light that pushes through external and internal darkness. The surfaces intend to create a feeling of depth, yet also a barrier from which light can emanate and radiate through. There is a hopefulness when light comes through a dark shroud, sometimes with a hint of color to add further intrigue and dimension. The pieces incorporate the intensity of powdered graphite with the lightness and translucency of cold wax, helping to facilitate the sense of mystery.
