This PhD involves my art practice using light as sculpture and an exegesis that documents its processes. Included is an investigation into Colour Field Painting and a dialogue between Minimalism and Vastu architecture from the Vedic Literature of India. Focusing on light as an important part of our sense of space I explore metaphors linked to cultural and philosophical influences alongside artistic practices engaged with these ideas. Contributions to the field of research in contemporary art include a methodology that combines an art practice exploring light as a medium while combining parallel ideas from art history and Vedic Philosophy.
This exhibition comprises the practical component of Veronica Aldous’ PhD research.
