When I saw the Eva Rothschild exhibition at Wellington City Gallery I was as drawn to the shadows cast by the works as much as I was drawn to the works themselves. Both were remarkable.
I’m wanting to play with shadow in my work for the Te Uru show.
The title of my work is “Belonging and S e p a r a t e n e s s”. I feel that casting a strong shadow of the piece, and making it part of the work, will help with expressing this idea.
While shadows are “part of us” and “belong” to us, they’re also separate from us.
