The Chandelier series explores the associative qualities of light and the artisanal ways to contain and deliver it, and the deeper, underlying reference to memory. Small works on paper in ink, pencil, carbon transfer and chine colle serve as studies for the examination of the various chandelier armatures, taking a wide-ranging approach to the forms. The chandeliers are presented singular and resolute - some emerge from a glistening ground of varnish with their ornamentation scratched into the surface, others maintain an ethereal presence with delicate swags of beading on and around the central form.
