Fallen Light showcases a new series of paintings by Robert Owen. The vertical black fields of the portrait abstract paintings, titled Soundings, are intersected by refracted light in yellow, pink, blue, grey, green and brown. Like composed musical notes the colours dance across the canvas. As the light resonates through space the paintings capture the encounter and transition of the two separate spheres of pure light and pure darkness. The canvas acts as a mediator for references, experiences and transitions - where sensation, colour and movement interact and come into being.
