James Ritchie's "Night Lights" series explores what lurks in the shadows of the haunting and mysterious half-light of dusk and night. With the harsh and distracting light of day extinguished, unexpected beauty is revealed in the dim, mundane, silent and serene solitude of night. These images present a sense of unfamiliarity within familiar situations. Viewers pause to contemplate the odd, mundane, or unexpected juxtapositions of color, light, and shadow. Drawing upon personal experiences and developing their own interpretations, passive spectators become participants in the art.
