'lamplight' pastel on paper The drawing ‘Lamplight’ forms part of a series of paintings and drawings based around the theme of light rays and the complexities that they evoke through shadow, colour and mood.

These brass lamps using tinted, frosted glass emitted a mysterious soft light within the home and each room had a different barely discernable colour that set the room and it’s function apart from the others. The lamp shape forms a central motif with bands or rays spreading out consisting of multi coloured marks puncturing the dark.
