The play of light and of the workings of time on our buildings has always fascinated me. The colours and light of maritime or southern climes are particularly useful. Full sun and weather tell on even our most vigilant house painter.

I use walls, windows, and texture as a kind of societal litmus, to capture that place where time brushes up against civilization. Worn shutters and gates all tell a story. Dappled light entrances us. Our mind can wander through the opening and be free to find our own fantasies.

Delicate tones and dramatic dispersion of light come into play, exciting or calming the viewer.

Somehow, a pause is depicted.
