TM Lighting presented an exhibition by British contemporary artist Ralph Anderson from 18th October – 21st December 2018.
The exhibition showcased Anderson’s bold abstract paintings including a large-scale, three panel triptych The Dog of Flanders, based on the Rubens altarpiece Descent from the Cross, in addition to a new multi-panel work Epicurus’ Interplanetary Conservatory which brings a more recognisably representational aspect to Anderson’s exploration of colour and gestural mark making. Additionally, examples of Anderson’s drawings and works on paper will compliment the larger aluminium and plywood pieces.
The exhibition One Thousand Years includes work from Anderson’s Lucent Umbra series, meaning ‘glowing’ or ‘shining’ shadow, referring to the technique he employs to give each work the illusion of a backlit glow and coloured shadow. This enhancement of the pared back and cut out paintings, that hang as floating reliefs, bring the surrounding walls of the gallery into play with the artwork, acting as temporal backgrounds for each image and erasing the definitive, framed edge of the painting. The resulting works hover between illusion and physical reality, investigating gesture and form whilst also playing with the notions of representation and non-representation in art.
TM Lighting collaborated with Anderson to illuminate the paintings using the GALLERYONEFIFTY high colour rendition LED spotlights to further enhance the luminosity of the neon reflective paint, investigating light, colour and shadow to reveal the three-dimensional qualities of the works within the gallery.

Brasserie of Light – a new destination restaurant and bar from Caprice Holdings
“It is about light, make-believe and dreams. Dreams in this restaurant will come true!”
Richard Caring, Caprice Holdings
Contemporary, artistic and elegant, Brasserie of Light is a new destination restaurant and bar offering all day dining in a chic, Art Deco space set within Selfridges department store, London.
The centrepiece of the restaurant is a 24ft crystal encrusted Pegasus statue created especially by Damien Hirst, his largest scale artwork in London. The sculpture is set in a spectacular interior design from Martin Brudnizki, which features bold, colourful and light filled interiors, with an impressive central bar and private dining room. Diners enter the double-height restaurant via an exclusive entrance on Duke Street.
TM Lighting worked hand in hand with Hirst, Pangolin and We Make It Happen to provide specialist LED art lighting to highlight Hirst’s new work within the destination restaurant.
TM Lighting selected their GALLERYONEFIFTY LED spotlights and designed a custom mounting stanchion to integrate seamlessly into David Chipperfield’s monumental Duke Street glass façade. The G150’s illuminate the gigantic crystal and diamond dust encrusted Pegasus statue by Damien Hirst. The spotlights were custom finished to match seamlessly with the interiors and architecture of the space.
The GALLERYONEFIFTY (G150) is a high-performance track mounted art light specially developed for high ceiling spaces typical in galleries, museums and contemporary spaces. The G150 utilises high CRI 95+ full colour rendition LED’s to ensure true colour accuracy and bring art to life.
TM Lighting’s RIVOFORTY (R40) LED accent lights were also used to illuminate smaller crystal Pegasus editions that adorn the mirrored columns in the bar. TM’s RIVO Forty was selected for its combination of classical design features, antique finish and high colour rendition LEDs, echoing the chic style of the new art-deco brasserie.
Brasserie of Light officially opened on 26th November 2018.
