Much of the painting is dark blues and purples
but I see galaxies of stars in violet and indigo with tiny suns of ocre and swirling masses of spiraling stars. There’s a cage like structure where the building leads your eye to the brilliant patch of light in the centre.
The church dominates, it’s red and white stripes dazzling compared to the depth of darkness they contrast with.. There are figures scurrying around in the gloom. Hints of a child with parents, maybe a couple on the left or is it a lone dark shadowy figure which merges into the deep blue.?
Even the tendrils are caged and restrained by white linear bars. Then there’s that “church”, but it’s not just a church, it’s Westminster Cathedral. Prominently framed by the surrounding architecture. Boldly absorbing all the light,Or is it reflecting light outwards to guide the way?
A Beacon in the darkness, perhaps?
I’ll let you decide…
Light at the End of the Tunnel will be part of my upcoming solo exhibition in October
