Two Kinds of LightSeptember 15, 2014
Light is generally thought of in terms of gradients – a linear dimension that moves between less or more in hue, tone, or position on a chromatic scale. It has rules and is understood with experience. This painting presents two kinds of light. The background is illuminated with a directional, consistent bluish moonlight. The light emanating from the stump is unexplained. It comes from everywhere and it may not be normally visible. It is rooted in imagination.
