Let there be Light
This collection celebrates the pure beauty of stained-glass windows. Most of the pieces are completed using acrylic gouache paint, specifically chosen for its high pigmentation and matt finish to provide vibrant colours. Some are also embellished with gold leaf gilding to add opulence to the finished work. Each stained-glass piece is inspired by a window of a cathedral. The details are painstakingly drawn out to the point that some are only truly visible by looking through a magnifying glass. Many of the windows are painted onto pure white paper to create a sense of abstraction from the original context. The results are beautifully decorative but also convey fascinating aspects of history and religion.
