Playing with Shadow and Light – 2001

As I wasn’t able to plant out this soulless garden I had to find another way to make it interesting.
 
The only saving grace as far as I was concerned were the amazing colours of the bore stains, which I imitated when painting the fence. Every day at the same time I painted the shadows and sunlight as they fell on the fence.
 
It was so enjoyable watching what I can only describe as a giant garden-sized sundial. As painted shadows and sun light approached the real ones, before overlapping and moving on. A wonderful play of light and shade, real and fake.
 
An added bonus was that it was always sunny in my garden, no matter what the weather
