Raking Light

James Richards

Raking Light takes its name from an examination method used in art conservation, where strong light is shone directly across the surface of a painting to highlight irregularities. The 2014 Turner Prize-nominated artist James Richards’ video is a looping, fizzing and sensually apocalyptic study of the elements. His dexterous sound composition adds an extra veneer to evocative but fleeting images, making our senses as malleable as putty.
