Photoshoot of my work installed in ‘Tension’ at Sevenoaks Kaleidescope Gallery

These are pictures of In the shadow of her gaze n.02, 2013, in stalled in Tension at the Sevenoaks Kaleidoscope Gallery, January 2014. This free exhibition continues until 8th February.

For me, this is the best the piece has looked. I stayed with a dense hang as this communicates more aggressive tension than a spaced-out, relaxed install.

The main difference this time is the better lighting this gallery offers. The piece is best lit by spots rather than uniform, overall light, which creates different moods across the piece and casts beautiful shadows behind it. The Shift exhibition used a similar approach but the lighting was harsher than at Kaleidescope and therefore less effective. However, spots do make the piece difficult to photograph – the camera records it differently than in real-life, ‘blowing’ the light in some of the images, requiring considerable work in Photoshop Raw to address.
