Noctuary Tray no.9
noc·tu·ary (n.) a record of what passes in the night; an account kept of the events or thoughts of night.
I've always had an affinity for the night, it's when I work best, I find comfort in the absence of light and its quiet stillness, my thoughts become clearer and more pronounced then, maybe that's partially to do with our three young children filling all other moments throughout the day.
In my new body of work, I am exploring the fleetingness of time through the absence of light, causing you, the viewer to look deeper into the illusion of void, which in reality has much less depth than you think.
it's shorter than you think,
therein lies the beauty."
- Krystal Festerly
The pieces have a painterly quality to them, blooms come in and out of view with the changing light, sinking into the darkness until they are out of sight.
