Playing with the effects of bright light and shadows against pigments and surface

I have long been fascinated by shadows. The way all texture and colour from the shadow-maker vanish. Just the block shape remains,  taking on the visual information of the object it is cast upon.

Sometimes I sit and trace the shadows cast by leaves, or the light in between things,  and am always surprised by how fast the sun moves, shifting what I am tracing at a perceptible speed. 

This series began whilst photographing my paintings in the garden one day. I was struck by how good the shadows of plant forms looked on the surface of the paintings. I took some photos and was excited by how the bright UV light changed the pigments of the paint through the camera lens. 

The resulting images are original limited edition prints and some will be painted onto and experimented with as this is an ongoing project.
