For me light is magical and joyous. Art contains relationships, rhythms, repetition and space. Colour is an element of space, and movement affects time and space. Antoni Tapies in Painting in the Void (1985:41) said: “Metaphors of space have always been introduced into painting, the play of fullness and emptiness, volumes,surfaces, light and shade….And, in recent painting in particular, the notion of ’emptiness’ has assumed great significance.” Light is the purest form of colour and it has an ephemeral, transient quality. Light can’t be touched, and it changes with the time of day or place. The reflections seen may be mainly one colour but other hues can be seen around the edges of that colour, or at the point when the colours change.
