About the painting
10 Wall Street Light
A single wall light glowing orange against a swirling indigo sky. The dark blue, is textured with tiny, fuzzy specks. A feature of the use of salt and time. Some effects cannot be rushed. This piece is less crowded than number 9, and this allows the paint freedom to create texture and respond to techniques used in the application.
The orange glow of the light is reflected in the wall behind and fuses with reds and browns. Brickwork details are marked by clean white lines. The back of the light and the strut supporting it are a sepia/black but the salt crystals have worked magic here and created little explosions of pink and yellow.
The shade of the light is framed with a halo of ink tendrils. The Wall light is on Market Hill in Buckingham. Above the parade of shops and so high as to escape the notice of most people going about their daily lives.
