Candescence is an exploration of light as an extension of our presence in space, and its ability to project meaning and narrative. 

INFORMATION

Candescence is an exploration of light as an extension of our presence in space, and its ability to project meaning and narrative. A highly saturated palette of monochromatic glazes creates tension between the familiar, and the alien and unnatural. These everyday spaces, void of an immediate human presence, are granted an unsettling stillness and silence.

 

Unconventional use of traditional glazing techniques has allowed Huw to create a series of oil paintings that sit half-way between the painterly and the photographic. Spanning a number of years, these works demonstrate a refinement in his concepts and techniques.
