Changing Light Over Caswell Bay

by Angela C. Smith :: Contact :: Portfolio

This painting brings together mathematical and imaginative abstraction. The naturalistic drawing \'Caswell Bay\' took several days of detailed, concentrated looking and working, during different times of the year. I became aware of how the light was changing constantly but that the experience of the change could not be captured in an observational drawing. So, I collected statistics, during visits over 2 years, of the different light conditions, ranging from blue sky and sun to overcast with thundercloud and produced boxplots of the relative frequencies of each. These are the upright figures in the picture, while the painted aspect of it is an imaginative recollection of the associated light and atmosphere.
