Six site-specific installations create a dramatic explosion of light and colour in the grounds of Waddesdon Manor.

Munro has a self-proclaimed passion for 'light in all its forms', and the works on display reflect his ongoing fascination with its transformative capabilities.

The display features works such as Brass Monkeys, a series of free standing pyramid sculptures within which spheres radiate varying shades of blue and white, and River of Light, a re-imagining of his Field of Light – the piece which first brought him to international prominence.

Made up of almost 6,500 lighted glass spheres arranged in a specific geometric format, it appears to flow and ripple like a river.

Munro hopes the light sculptures will invite visitors to explore the landscape in new and unusual ways.

The exhibition is the conclusion to Waddesdon Manor's year-long focus on the sensual, illusory and aesthetic effects of light.
