Landmarks is a series of early works. Some are based on landscape views - such as ‘View From Macdui’ - inspired by climbing in the Scottish mountains and the views from that area. Others reference the geological structure of the earth and natural patterns of layered strata formed over time. The work is constructed to reflect this idea further, through the process of layering and shaping translucent resin forms using a variety of casting techniques. The cast resin forms absorb the light to become solid blocks of pure illuminated colour. These pieces were produced as an exercise for processing different ideas and techniques. They signify the artist’s first explorations using resin as a material and lighting it using fluorescent tubing. Working in that element also inspired him to use raw lights like LEDs, encasing light within resin so that light could be experienced as a 3D form.
