Leaves & Light Series

Article text
"This project began in early spring 2009. I wanted to learn all about what colours leaves display in spring and summer and I discovered that every colour you might find in autumn are present in every season except winter.

The sculptures I have made for this series were often created to catch the morning or evening sun so that the colours of the leaves shine out showing the intensity and vibrancy. The photos accurately depict just how the sculpture looked at the time. I do not enhance the colours or cheat using photo processing software.

The effect is achieved through careful construction and in placing each sculpture in places that allow the sun to shine through them."
