‘Congregation’ is my largest relief work to date. I have shown in the lobby of the Forge Studios, where I do most of my work, and experimented with lighting.
I have noted the powerful effect of sunlight on smaller pieces and was inspired to try lighting ‘Congregation’ artificially to see what happened. I have to say, the effects were very strong and I took a few photos as a record.
These results were using a single lamp but I have imagined using multiple light sources, strips of colour changing LEDs or even lasers, carefully controlled obviously. I think there are lots of possibilities here.
