Illumination

imageimageThere was one window at St Nicholas’ Church that was illuminated. I am very interested in the concept of boundaries between inside and outside in my work.

I was drawn to this window because it was the only one which allowed me to see inside the church. Through this very old and dark window I could see that the church had stonework that was quite ornate and painted with gold leaf.
