‘Catch the Rainbow’ is an interactive light installation for children where they are encouraged to literally “Catch the Rainbow”. As a child I would go for drives with my mum and we would see many rainbows. You can see photographs of my attempt at actually catching this elusive rainbow and four stills from the installation.
Next, ‘Colour and Light No. 1’ explores the uses of shape, from and assemblage the combinations of coloured glass and coloured light are the essence of this sculpture. With the addition of this piece allowing to be site specific, the potential to expand and grow it takes flight.
In the ninth image, I show my project ‘Letting in the Rainbow No. 2’. To continue with this spiritual element and growth people can experience through life is shown here through a combination of monotype and photo-screen printing, with stencils, drawing ink and graphite. Although a rainbow can never pass through a person, the enlightenment as allowed from spiritual growth is the message here, where to be open to this impasse as otherwise perhaps not allowed by life.
And finally, I include from the ‘Yellow in the Achieving Freedom Series’ one of three acrylic paintings with colour pencil and chalk in which this spiritual feeling of achieving freedom in whichever capacity from life is sought and actually achieved. Whether this be freedom from physical constraints of life i.e.- mortgages, responsibility, to a freer state of mind.
