'The Luminosity Of Your Love Shines Through'

by: Frances Lemmon

This unique piece is best described by Frances herself:

“The Luminosity of your love shines through” is about being a true romantic - to totally exist with another person and to live together eternally. My starting point for this image was the tradition of burying tactile possessions with individuals to represent their souls continued journey from earth, a hidden trajectory deep in the earth to high up in the night skies.    

This is one of three pastel drawings that came into being from becoming interested in the prehistoric Guernsey landscape all around us and looking at the different layers of earth literally beneath our feet. I loved working with the pastels as they can be manipulated in various ways; washing them down or layering them like chalk so a subtle depth can be built up over time which creates a softness that is strangely energising and calming at the same time.

Each drawing was based on an image that has stood the test of time and has equal meaning in the 21st century as in the past.
