Tried a new technique today to allow more light to bleed through the watercolour paper – enabling me to select more transparent areas and describe light shapes – decided to make this ‘bulb’ light box – MOTHS – which appear as the bulb is switched on.
Taking inspiration from the well-known poem by Hughes Mearns
Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away…
A series based on our curiosities.. Victoriana – the unseen, secrecy and obsession.
