refraction drawings

The “Refraction” series of works are a continuation of the “Chiaroscuro” theme of light and shadow. Whereas the “Chiaroscuro” series are inspired by the play of light and shadow on land, the “Refraction” series are derived from observing the interaction of light and water. While the surface of land is solid and impenetrable (by light), water is liquid and has movement and depth. One surface is motionless, the other is in permanent flux.
