Light Bath, Hand cut vinyl, chain, LED lights, dimensions variable, Akin Vitrine Gallery, March 2017
On view 24/7, time is an entity of interest inside a vitrine space. The vitrine offers a brief escape into another world, -one whose welcome extends as long as the viewer choses to stand in front of it. Winter can feel long and relentless and it is during these months that we often consider time with a heightened awareness. The days are shorter, and we desperately try to hold onto
the light that leaves us. Cut from white vinyl sprawling floral drawings fill the vitrine space with motifs of St. Johns wort, lavender flowers, wild roses, peonies and hemp leaves which are often regarded for their healing properties in combatting anxiety, depression and restlessness. The drawings are projected with soft beams of coloured light, which are controlled remotely from the artist's iPhone. Created and installed during the peak of winter, the installation seeks to be a space of visual escape and as an affirmation of the importance of self- care.
