Just like the title says, this oil painting on illustration is dark and light, colourful and sombre, good and bad, the duality of our existence. It reflects the places that press into our flesh, uncomfortable and yet, sometimes, we must learn to call this place home for awhile. Immediacy and deftness of stroke, nothing withheld. Done in oil paints and oil sticks on illustration board. Signed on front.
Working from a colourist's perspective I continue to experiment with palettes to see how much more energy and aliveness I can bring to my paintings and in the process search for more ways to make my studio and the art that is produced more eco-friendly.
