I was feeling the need for some uninhibited pure creativity recently. I needed to begin with barely an idea and let the painting process direct me. This piece is the result of that.
It’s about light and dark. Without the dark, we would be unaware of the light. Without light, we would be unaware of darkness. We as humans really like it when we have the right amount of both, because then we can see colour in all its beauty. Some of us actually see more colour than others, and others just prefer more intense colour, while still others prefer muted colours or shades of grey. Either way, a perfect balance of light and dark is what we need for our best vision.
I mean all of this metaphorically as well as literally. Take this imagery, in the context of your own life, or of current events, and make of it what you will.
