Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Poetry of Light celebrates the light within ourselves. The tall vertical composition has an upward movement that inspires and lifts the viewer into an optimistic vision of hope and joy. The painting uses a unique patina technique where layers of fluid paint are applied, dried and then washed away. This creates layers of color that resemble a natural phenomenon like a sunrise. The canvas has a light texture which adds a sensual tactility to the work – a dimension of art that invites the viewer to “feel” the piece. The edges are left painted revealing the creative process. The work is signed on the back and is ready to hand.
