Peter Tilley - 'Second Self'

The shadow is one of the many visual elements within the tableau of everyday icons that populate my artworks. Its context has usually indicated an unseen presence beyond the frame of the work or signified an aspect of that which is casting the shadow.

Art Exhibition previously on at MAY SPACE in Waterloo precinct, New South Wales, Australia.
From Tuesday 27 October 2015 to Saturday 21 November 2015

As a result of these earlier works, I have now become preoccupied with the shadow and its possibilities within a 3D format. The shadow as an expressive material object will be the point of difference and focus of investigation in developing my body of work for this exhibition. In some cases becoming the dominant 3D form, shadows will give insight into the figures’ characters and provide linkages between the visual, the psychological and their manifestations.
