I have been aiming for light painting, seeking what gives a painting a light feeling, even with complex scenes or subjects.For me, lightness is a floating/unstable image, drawn from memory, not directly from reality. The atmosphere at the time you remember something rather than observing a photo/image, trying to draw a vague memory.How the scene looked at that time for me as a way to express how a moment was.
Painting is my core form of expression, I bring into my practice ideas of gesture and movement, space is important, the space around a painting and within, Viewer experience and translating my memory to them.
