Solstice – of darkness and light, images of work

Here are some images of my work in the exhibition, a group of seven concrete and mixed media objects, titled Dust from a distant sun. Here's how I described it in our show media:

This installation of cast concrete, iron-oxide pigment, clay, coral, leather, wax, aluminium and gold is a meditation on the changing lightscapes throughout our days, and on the heaviness of time irrevocably passing. Vast cloudy afternoons, starry nights, long forgotten mornings; once gone, never to return. The objects–containers, vessels, industrial-organic forms–stand seemingly together, grouped like planets or a constellation, yet each ultimately alone, perhaps carrying the same melancholy that contemplating the enormous universe sometimes evokes. Comforting, the warmth of the sun is always present, as light connecting the works and illuminating the gently rendered surfaces.

  1. Thanks for posting these beautiful images. I was sorry to be out of town for the show. The surfaces look sublime.

  2. Thank you Kevin! I'll email you a "mini-catalogue" we put together for friends who couldn't attend so you can see Aurelia's and Naoko's work too.
