☰ Jonathan Thomson Art


Shadows are an absence of light and a form of negative space. Light and shadow constitute a universal duality. Shadows embody darkness and can be associated with secretive things but shadows also have their own poetry. Shadows are themselves abstract, insubstantial and ephemeral but their presence adds truth to forms.

These works are based on close observation of the shadows that are cast by a figure or object onto itself. The shadows are depicted in black only, for its authority and depth of symbolic meaning.
