Artist's Description of The Light Behind
Purchase this painting
Using spare geometric, expressionistic forms and a reference to realism with the use of the black cloth, this painting is an intuitive exploration of light and goodness being obscured by a large dark presence. Nevertheless, the light is powerful enough for the viewer to search out despite the overwhelming dark agitation of the cloth and swirling space. Symbolically, the cloth can mean ignorance or sin and the surrounding brushwork brings forth a sense of rumblings from below--almost as a great groan.
