RoseSplash is part of my project entitled a study in scarlet. Named after the 1887 detective novel by British author Arthur Conan Doyle, A Study in Scarlet emerged during a winter photography research trip to Hokkaido, Japan. Whilst nestled in the vast whiteness of the snow, I explored the minimalist sensibility of the Japanese countryside vis-a-vis the horror vacui inclinations of the urban Manila visual landscape, where there is not an inch left without either a building or a billboard on the horizon.
As I try to limit my color palette to red only until I expose inch of it. I want to showcase my painting and draw attention to the details.
