The paintings become established objects that represent the border between light and shadow, thus forming a spatial relationship. An illusory monochrome embraces the viewer creating a window of perception, a passage to meditation.

 

Numerous layers are created using micro-sphere glass particles, mixed media polymer acrylics, resin and suspended, reflective minerals and pigments. However, Higgins eschews traditional paintbrushes and instead applies the luminous materials using handmade tools such as large palette knives. The focus on precisely modeling the surface to catch light, explores visual strategies linked to sculpture that result in an undoubted relationship between an illusion of depth and abstraction.
