Panchal Mansaram, 1994 (installed 2014)
Colour xerography on paper and wood
Magic Light was inspired by Hidden Valley Park. Mansaram noticed the beautiful light in the park and took the photograph that is the starting point for this artwork. The piece was created using a technique called xerography, one of the first forms of photocopying. Starting with photographs, the artist copied and manipulated the images to create a multi-layered collage effect. Magic Light was donated to the City of Burlington’s Public Art Collection by local artist Panchal Mansaram.
