For this artwork, I wanted to explore the contrast between light and dark by creating light with matches. I looked at the work of Gerhard Richter and his painting of candles and how he draws attention to the flame. This inspired me to draw the attention to the flames by having them in the dark with a black background which was a great way to contrast the light of the flame to the darkness of the background.
