“One of a series of works inspired by things I have seen with my eyes shut - after images, the sun through eyelids on a hot day, the occasional geometric pattern. Do you see the same sort of thing? Some people have said yes, some no. This one is the tiny, electric blue dot which has occasionally pursued me since the birth of my first child.” - Rachel McDonnell, 2021
