I recently exhibited my Light Paintings and a Light Sculpture at the ‘Threads’ exhibition with Roger Bygott and Hannah Leighton-Boyce at the Link Gallery.

I used electrical tape to frame my Light Painting projections, this was necessary to create a defined area for these works as they work with light and shade, so the shaded parts would have been lost without the frame.

I made my sculpture in response to the unusual shape of the gallery. I used white thread to reshape the space in a mix of sharp angular shapes, some covered with paper as platforms for the bright slowly moving projections to bring the sculpture to life. The light from the projections catches on the strings, illuminating them and giving a sense of movement. The shadows cast from the sculpture also moves across the back wall as the light and dark areas of the projection slowly shift across the space.

Here is an extract from the installation view of my Light Sculpture:
