Title: Sun Glitter 2022

Artist statement

Walking around the point at the Scarborough Marina, I was mesmerised by the soft surge and sounds of the bay. The sun’s reflection created dancing dots of sun glitter on the sea’s dynamic surface. This constantly moving vast body of water and its glittering surface brought me into a reflective, relaxed and deeply appreciative space.

Inspired by the passage of light from dawn to sunset, I hope these dancing dots encourage you to feel the freedom of the bay, transparent, soft and strong. The bay breathes, its surface rising and falling with rhythmic ease as the sun pulses and glitters on the surface.
