These shadow paintings explore how visual information is transmitted through shadow forms. While the imagery indicates the natural world, it is also self-referential, building on shapes and patterns that evolve in the making of the work. This is enhanced by the fact that I often work on a grid or in multiples, which makes it possible to arrange and rearrange the imagery into different groupings, allowing viewers to connect with the work in imaginative ways.
