Havens of Light is a series of works by Artist Michael Palmer celebrating light – la luc. These paintings, using the medium of acrylic, are imbued with it, bursting out with colour. According to Palmer, we are all like boats seeking out havens in the storms of life, and maritime scenes feature largely in this exhibition.
