James Turrell 

I love the way James Turrell works with light and space as a medium. Works such as ‘Veils’ and ‘Tunnel Pieces’ really blur the lines of traditional art forms. With light being intangible, the viewer is forced to experience it as both a ‘light’ painting and a sculptural form. Sculpture that has aspects of translucency and changeability are intriguing. My interest, however, is, like the Impressionists, to see light as a subject and be able to render it effectively in some way; to capture its essence, its fleeting ephemeral nature. To test if the centre of it, the glow that hits the eye is indeed white, as it transfers as such.
