Great Bright Light


“Your memory is made of light.” – Pablo Neruda

Acrylic on canvas

60cm x 60cm x 4cm deep

Great Bright Light was inspired by the poetry of Pablo Neruda and a divine sunrise in The Bay of Islands, and the shift to the Aquarian energy. Following a storm, the skies blazed with brilliant rays of light. I took a photo (another of my obsessions) and later painted how the moment made me feel—full of light. Layering washes of colour, I worked fluidly and spontaneously, mainly using a monochromatic palette of blues. I also love blue so much I could eat it 🫐💙🦋What’s your favourite colour?
