    David Clarke Fabulous luminosity of colours which complement each other beautifully to create forms that look organic even though they are created by mixing together among other things, household chemicals! There is a 3 dimensional feel which is created by juxtaposition of powerful shapes and colours. Wonderful wonderful wonderful!

A series of photographs I took between February 2022 and April 2023 of crystals in polarised light on my 1970 Leitz Orthoplan polarising microscope. I prepared the crystals from a variety of household chemicals and sweeteners. Thousands of pictures later, I have curated a series of my favourite ones. A successful joint exhibition featuring 16 of them (some in this set) were shown in an exhibition titled Polychromo at Alveston Fine Art in Notting Hill in London in March 2023.
