Born in Ballymoney, Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland, 1963.
In the Lumen series of projects the topic of investigation is light itself. Different aspects of light are explored in separate bodies of work. My aim is to let light reveal itself.
Throughout history the phenomenon of light has always fascinated people. This is what some people have said about it:
Grosseteste: “Light is beautiful in itself, for its nature is simple and all of it is there at once. Wherefore it is integrated in the highest degree and most harmoniously proportioned and equal to itself, for beauty is a harmony of proportions.” (From: Eco, Umberto. The Aesthetics Of Thomas Aquinas. Cambridge, Massachusetts: Harvard University Press. 1988, p.109)
