Light Box II

2006
Acrylic on Board
445mm x 580mm
Over the course of this year, I became interested in Vermeer and his treatment of light, and decided that I wanted to experiment with this. I tried to create the view of the inside of a box which contained within it a light. There were three paintings in which I worked through this idea in different ways, with different results.

This is the second painting, and it is a lot smaller than the first. It has also been described as my ‘Pumpkin painting’.
