Golden Wattle, Golden Light and Holly's Pot
2020
760mmL x 1500mmH / Oil On Canvas

This piece explores the effect of late afternoon sun on a domestic scene. 

In contrast to a study of highly personal domestic objects, the light and shadow renders some of the scene murky, foregrounding the subject, obscuring the background and making the detail of the setting illegible. 

The individuality of the scene is quietened, dulling the personal to create a sense of universal familiarity with the transformational power of horizontal sun.
