My great, great uncle. Just in case anyone's interested...
'Searching for Light' is the first in a series of life-size or near-life-size paintings through which I'm exploring the nature of the individual as enclosed by, or adrift in, less substantial space, and emotive narrative incident.

I won't be banging on about the 'meanings' of these paintings; I've always found such behaviour absurd; I would not expect a poet to be prepared to draw me a picture if I was unable to make sense of his poems. I hope instead that the relationships between the paintings' contained visual elements and my judgements of external context are sound enough that each functions alone as a means through which to convey meaning.
