Spirit Within Matter
Melanie McKay is inspired by the way that light hits objects. In these scenes from her domestic life, she finds an extraordinary and other-worldly beauty within the trappings of everyday objects. Spirit Within Matter examines the peculiar and ethereal being of these objects and delights in the ‘object moments’ in which the subterranean, spiritual essence of domestic objects come to life. In this collection, light and shadow become one – joining forces to unveil the hidden reality of things – and guiding us, the observers, towards new understandings.
