Light Shadow

Dappled light and dark shade, a form contained within a space that explores a wide canopy of emotional states.

This work has a lot of different moods, it reacts with the ambient light present at the time. It can look dark, broody, solid and impenetrable, the knit like a cold cage. In the softer light of dusk it appears bright, golden and glowing an enticing welcome, yet still casts a foreboding shadow. A contradiction of emotions.
