Research outcomes for Department of Culture and the Arts (DCA) 2013 Creative Development Grant.
The grant was a contribution towards research and development for new illuminated work.
The artist is grateful to DCA for funding supporting this research.
The grant application proposed to: create a body of illuminated work that more broadly explores illumination as a metaphor used in everyday life, philosophy, literature, spirituality.
It was important the series operated beyond the idea of mere lighting, to express a sense of wonder in the shift between day and nocturnal presence. The artist wanted to create a series of illuminated forms with an intentional ambiguity that evoked a sensorial response from the viewer.
