Shadow Patterns are the result of projecting various light sources onto plants, chosen for the quality of their foliage, to create interesting shadows against different coloured or textured backdrops. From the many rings of torchlight used in ‘Moonshadow’ to the soft uplight provided by a lampshade in ‘Lit from Below’ the direction and intensity of the projected light can create an infinite variety of shapes and strengths of shadow. In these paintings the shadow is the focus of the painting and the source object is peripheral - a reference only to the pattern presented.
