Artist Bio

REFRACTED LIGHT SERIES
The “ REFRACTED LIGHT SERIES” is comprised of floating images which is created by violently scratchingand drilling each transparent sheet which is then stacked together. Thelight source of Led Lights set in the frame, creates a delicate floating imageof refracted light, revealing themselves like veils. Without the light sourcethe image cannot exist. The repetitive pattern making is a meditative process, self-informing itself as the piece evolves and explores a universe in constant flux. At the heart of this disorienting movement lies stillness, the space, where the spectator can slow down, catch their breath and reflect. 
Trees have always been fascinating to me for their interconnectedness and strength. The Led Lights are programmed on a constant random loop, creating the illusion of sunlight / moonlight passing through the multitude of branches and leaves. The defiant trunk, anchoring itself as the branches and leaves dance in the wind is to me more symbolic than ever during this time of chaos and uncertainty.  May the “Tree of Light/ Life” series shine some light on the darkness, transporting the viewer to a place of solace and comfort.
The artist was born in London in 1973, she now lives and works in New York City.
