Hi-Fructose: Tenebras Lux Review

Great review of the show by Caro at Hi-Fructose:

"Beau Stanton has new works he describes as “enigmatic illuminations”, now on view at the Crypt of Saint John the Baptist in Bristol. Curated by Andy Phipps, the show’s title “Tenebras Lux” refers to darkness and light, created by these lit panels emerging out of the crypt’s dark, anicent space. The 9 stained glass panels combine elaborate oil painting with original medieval lead framework, inspired by Classical Antiquity and religious iconography that has long influenced Stanton. They are then independently lit with LED light frames, creating an interesting juxtaposition between old and new techniques. Stanton first visited the venue last year and was hooked. The photos he took of the architecture, stone carvings, and ornaments were later incorporated into the designs."
