Biography

Natasha Light is currently using photography in combination with her ceramic and paper sculptures to create work in which object and image merge to invoke atmospheric dreamscapes. Natasha's experience of dance and nature has led to a fascination for structure and movement, expressed by using lighting, shadows, sound and kinaesthetics. Structural ceramic elements are fired, sewn together and then suspended to create sculptures imbued with dynamic and sensual qualities. The process involves dealing with aspects such as tension, rhythm, weight, balance and gravity alongside an exploration of site and lighting to allow the ethereal, physiological qualities to be further developed.
