Candlepower

Leisa Ryan
6 - 23 december

In this latest body of work, Leisa explores the nocturnal landscape and the effect of an artificial light source on colour and tonal relationships. Drawn from the artist’s local areas of Sandgate and Wynnum, these familiar places by day are transformed by darkness into mystical and eerie vistas. Deserted streets at night, a shop lit by street light and the railway station in the early morning all transformed by a different light. 

Candlepower is a measurement of the intensity of light and for the artist, it is another way of measuring light and making an image that evokes the experience of seeing.
