NH488 ‘Shadows 18 - White Church 3’ 34 x 50 inches   86.5 x 127 cm     Acrylic on Canvas    2017 
           This is the culminating work in a group of paintings which explore a process of minimising  acknowledgement of the depiction of an object; by representing it solely through pictorial  reference to attached and cast shadows. The absence of sky in this image makes it much more  non-figurative in quality than others in the group, but the use of gradated tone gives depth and  strength to the very dynamic shapes found within the composition. The picture can be read  purely as a balanced arrangement of shapes, but because of the distribution of large and small  elements it also reads as a solid and understandable structure.
